(Review in Dutch)

Wie in de klassieke oudheid en archeologie is geïnteresseerd mag dit museum niet missen. Het leukst vind ik de de ArcheoHotspot. Dit is een ruimte waar (amateur-)archeologen bezig zijn om archeologisch vondsten nader te onderzoeken. Je kan de aanwezige archeologen vragen stellen en de originele vondsten beetpakken. Geschiedenis wordt zo voelbaar. Verder is er in het museum een uitgebreide collectie Romeinse, Griekse en Egyptische voorwerpen. Bij de laatste spreken mij de alledaagse gebruiksvoorwerpen aan zoals 3000 jaar oud toiletgerei of een fraaie vishaak die er tegenwoordig nog hetzelfde uitziet. Qua kunstvoorwerpen zijn de levensechte Fayum portretten het mooist. Je ziet een echt gezicht van ruim 2000 jaar geleden. In het aangrenzende gebouw van Bijzondere Collecties, binnendoor bereikbaar, is het café met lekkere koffie en taart.
