Have some very unique pieces of art, relatively well presented. It is a petty that the lighting is not working in the exposition cabinets, so somme pieces are difficult to see. The architecture and decoration of the house is interesting combining ceramics, wood and marble.

Small private collection of diamonds and jewellery collection, this museum is a nice visit to enjoy the talent of the famous Mouawad Diamonds House

While in the city do not miss visiting this museum, it should not take a lot of time but it is definitely worth it! Make sure you check the opening hours before going there.

Forget the museum, just come and enjoy the gardens and the house. The gardens captivate you the moment you walk through the gate. They are peaceful, having the ability to shut out the noise of the city and somehow cool the air. The house is so beautiful, inside and out. But especially inside. Carved wood, marble floors, stained glass -... More

You cannot imagine what you can find in this usually empty private museum next to the UK embassy. In an converted old mansion surrounded by actual Roman columns, a small fee paid to a sleepy guard lets you in to wander round rooms full of things like Heidi Klum's $10m diamond-studded bra and the world's second-biggest diamond, worth a gazillion...

This is a wonderful place... the building itself and the interiors. The collections are wonderful too. The glass is probably one of the finest collections that we have ever encountered. The jewellery is totally bling! The place is very difficult to find, but ask for the British Embassy and it is almost next door. The grounds looked lovely but as... More
