Dear visitors,

Good news! The renovation works of the Museum by the Building Agency continue to progress. For this reason, and for safety measures:

  • part of the Historic Gallery has been closed since 7 February for a period of 6 months;
  • part of the '14-'18 Gallery is also inaccessible until further notice.

Thank you for your comprehension.
