Don't let the small front of this museum - or the free admission - fool you. This is an extensive museum with a wide range of art and artifacts. The tablets they provide are free and provide information on most of the works.

This is a wonderful out of the way art museum in a double townhouse which itself is impressive. The collection of Islamic art is awesome. An art museum not to be missed.

A taxi would be the best, as the bus stops are at either end of street, where the David Collection is placed - so you would have to walk a bit. A good idea is to be able to show the taxi driver, where the museum is, as it is... More
