We went there for Tim Burton exhibition. Of course the exhibition was nice. But the building and also the patio are very pretty. Worth the visit.

The Tim Burton exhibit is fantastic for fans. Lots of drawing and sketches.. a bit pricey (330 per person) for one hour to walk through. No photos allowed inside. Great courtyard with an ice cream stand.. plenty of photo ops outdoors.

the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
