I share many of the other views expressed. Why isn't this museum busier? A delightful experience where you can enjoy a couple of hours in the house of Jose Benlliure.

I don't know why this house doesn't attract more visitors ! We were not many people the day when I went, which was perfect to enjoy the place.
