“Sunny place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

It is a very cozy place that fills you with positive emotions and lifts up your mood. It's both educational and playful, concentrating and relaxing. It's really different from traditional museums but worth a visit.

“Lovely idea, but a bit chaotically developed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

The best thing is that you do feel the sun everywhere around you as soon as you step in. The colours are perfect, the shapes are various, the suns are numerous, but it's really hard to capture any single object with your eye.

Still this is a pleasant place, and it can lift your spirits.

“Tiny place -more shop than museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Friendly service, just don't expect too much. You would not spend much time there but you can buy cool souvenirs there.

“Sun museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

This was a brilliant morning out. as the displays were not in english our guide took us round and explained all about the exhibition, which was basically suns from all over the world. At the end we were able to paint our own sun to bring home, all this for L2.50, about £3, excellent!!!
