There is a large gallery for contemporary art shows downstairs from the main attraction here, a comprehensive collection of Islamic pottery. Check if you can whether the museum has reopened!

It is a waste of money, the metro tickets. And then you thinking that it will be open you shouldn't go. But you could go there to see the hanging church. I didn't like it at all me and my brother were like " ahhhh".

The website showed it as open, but when I went by there yesterday, the guard said it had been closed for a month. The building look beautify from the outside, spit is disappointing that it is not open.
