This museum has a little of everything. Paintings of portraits and landscapes, sculptures, furniture, jewels, pottery, carpets, tiles, hair clips and pins are arranged beautifully in several different rooms that are laid out so you can walk from one to the next.
I did the audio tour and thought it was worthwhile. For 4 Euros you hear a little info about chosen pieces (about 20% or less have audio information).
The cafeteria is not pricey with a good lunch.
The gardens are also worth a walk through.
I did this in 1/2 a day but you could easily make a day out of it.
The surrounding area is a nice part of the city to walk around and shop also!
