Best museum I’ve visited. I learned about fakes, counterfeits and forgeries. Not a large place, but well displayed with interesting information.

One of the most interesting museum I have ever seen. A collection of fake that will make you change your vision of art.

Complete tourist trap. A room the size of our living room with some false Rembrandts, a Picasso, and the like (and a Vermeer by Van Meegeren), but I don't even think they are the genuine false ones. Photocopies rather, with ridiculous little explanation. You can...More
