Besides it being a museum, it has a lovely lounge/bar area, with great coffee and cakes and fantastic (free) music on Sunday mornings (wide range) from 11 a.m. Come early for a seating place!

We have a weekly family gathering on Friday morning. Coffee and good conversation. Swift and friendly waitresses and a very good cup-of-coffee

This small museum is well worth a visit, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibition was well displayed and presented with care and style. There is also a very nice cafe as well.

Incredibly small for 8 EURO (just 2 times less than Louvre or Prado). Takes 5 minutes to see all the avant-garde abstracts.
