“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The collection itself and the museum are just okay. Nothing special. But the building itself, especially the second floor, is grand. The plaster work is superb.

We were given a booklet full of information about this delightful museum but be aware that the pages don't always correspond to the room

“Breathtaking decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Excellent value for money. The exhibits may be less interesting than the building they are housed in but the tile work is amazing and the courtyard garden a joy. The staff were up a ladder getting kumquats and gave us some to try - lovely
