They have a very impressive collection from different items, the museum is one of the most important European Decorativ Art center. The art collection displays artworks in more than forty rooms from late antiquity and Romanesque art to Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo art to the exhibits of Neoclassicism and Art Nouveau.

Unfortunately, the really good exhibits were closed due to renovation or something the day we visited the museum. We got ourselves an audioguide in English but most items did not have explanations in English. Despite limited information in English, we loved the beautiful paintings and sculptures. Great exhibits. I loved what I heard about Nativity Collections but could not go... More

I will confess I missed the nativity collection, so maybe that would have lightened up my rating of this museum. Also I may have seen too much Medieval religious art at this point to be appreciative. However, I found the displays to be very dark and skewed to the 5th to the 15th centuries such that I skipped part of... More

I was so impressed with the amazing and interesting collections in this museum! I especially enjoyed being able to see most items close enough to actually touch. Beautiful exhibits of medieval armour worn by kings, knights and horses, stained glass, artwork, clothing, Tiffany glass, religious objects, etc, etc. I highly recommmend a visit. My only disappointment was not being able... More

An excellent museum with beautiful collection. On top of my list, the Renaissance clothing with one of the best preserved Renaissance dress in existence, as well as beautiful coats, jackets a dress from the 18 century. There are collection of jewelry, furniture, baroque musical instruments etc... Nice collection of art nouveau glasses with several pieces for Tiffany, Gallé, etc there... More

Easy to get to on the #18 tram. The museum and staff are superb. Allow at least 90 minutes to see the nativity collection. Check ahead of time to be sure that section is open.

This collection of miniatures is amazing!! So authentic and realistic looking you can almost believe you are looking at real actors (they don't move, of course). There are so many scenes displayed that I tired of taking photos of them and finally gave up. These displays are an amazing accomplishment!!

Very interesting museum worth a visit. The collection of early century musical instruments is worth checking out, so to are the examples of 'farmhouse parlours' from different periods. The Gothic hall has an 'interesting' piece of a skeleton astride a lion.

Very impressive museum with great artifacts from various churches going back a few centuries. There is a very nice collection of nativity scenes in the basement. I think this museum is a bit underrated, maybe due to its location but if you have the time, it's worth a visit.
