With a bold design from the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, it is divided in five spaces and invites visitors to reflect on the past, present and future. It is a museum to look, feel and think. Futuristic architecture, the museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 18pm, with last entrance to the exhibition 17pm. Admission is $6 dollars for adults and $3 for childrens.
