Grand venue for a grand wedding. The high ceiling and the echo in the main hall made it a magical experience for me and for the 500+ guests that were in attendance.

Really impressive, a beautiful space with a wide range of artifacts from all around the world - some of the large architectural pieces are incredible, and the garden space is delightful as well. Recommended.

A very beautiful museum built in Victoria[n] times, finished in marble, stocked with collections from the world.
