What a collection of swarovski! Though money can buy one must have the heart to buy this costly with the certificates.

Personally having this collection is really worthwhile! Well maintained,

This private museum has an extensive collection of "Kitch" from all around the world. It has the largest Swarovski collection in the world. This is actually one of the few museums my kids (8 years old) actually enjoyed. Our guide was very friendly and knew a lot about the pieces.

Not often do you get to see someone's private collection. This is well displayed and many of the items are amazing. A very modern collection mostly. Well worth a visit especially if you like glass & ceramics.
