The museum also hosts concerts and temporary exhibitions.

The 3-floor-high museum is organised in sections according to chronological order and artistic movements. When visiting, take notice of the palace in which the museum is located, too. It was designed through a collaboration of several architects, specifically to provide an adequate home to the museum. Especially interesting is its huge spiral staircase.
