One of the great museums of the world with its huge selection for items. I visited for about 3-4 hours and saw amazing artifacts, furniture, tapestries, metalwork, costumes, documents, and jewelry. And this visiting just 7 of the 146 galleries in the museum. There are so many fascinating items on display that it is exhausting. Plan for about a 3 hour visit. I will definitely be returning to see more as soon as possible.
