Getting there
The museum is situated at the suburbs of the city within the beautiful environment of a Renaissance castle in the Fuzine quarter. As it is a bit too far to walk from the city centre, a fifteen minute bike ride is a very practical and healthy solution and thus recommended. If you are without a bike, the final stop of bus number 20 brings you there. For higher comfort take a taxi.
