This museum is a must-visit for sculpture lovers. There are so many rooms to see. I got there an hour before their closing. I just wish I had more time to enjoy the collection. My personal favourite is the lion sculpture called Love.

The marble sculptures are excellent. I found the audio guide irritating and pretentious. Unless you are really into the marble, keep this for an opportunity to get in from the rain, or to fill in the end of a day.

The room with the massive statues is amazing as well as the room with Christ and the disciples. Truly beautiful. However, the rest of the work is not well shown and was not very interesting to us. If in the area, worth a short visit....More
