This is a unique museum. It it bizarre. Filled with weird displays and garage sale finds. One of the displays is literally cat food from the supermarket!

The cat museum its self is great unique should not miss experience. Cat lovers would find it very interesting, non cat lovers would marvel in the novelty. All that being said the view and the gardens directly outside the museum is amazing! Would be excellent at sunset

This place does need a make over. Most of the glass panels were filled with scratches and it does look 'foggy' as if it wasn't been cleaned for a long long time. This place may be appealing for cat lovers.

Unless you are cat lovers or bring kids along with you, it won't really attract you. Mainly exhibition only, no real cats inside

If you love cats you will love this place, they have cat displays on everything ... famous peoples cats, cats in history, cats on TV, cats in different religions, cat food displays... that doesn't even scratch the surface!! We didn't NOT enjoy it, and are glad we went just for the experience.
