  • Beautiful collection that is displayed in spacious rooms. Always interesting themes for temporary exhibitions and great descriptions in English. A firm favourite 10 years ago and now.
  • The collection of this museum is really impressive, beautiful pieces and nice arrangements. Lights could be better to enjoy textures and details but in general is ok. Firts Wednesday of the week is free entrance. Count at least two hours for the visit.
