“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

For anyone who loves fashion this museum is a must. To see the construction of garments, the use of fabric - the embroidery - fabulous!

“beautiful colllection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

What a surpise to find such a nice museum is such a small town. Its fashion so women an gay's are targetgroups but you get to see a beautifull collection in a somewhat over the top building. No logical route to follow so make sure you get to see everything.

“An Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We found the Cristobal Balenciaga Museum to be an excellent museum. At the start of the visit one should take a look at the video that explains how Balenciaga designed his dresses. This video is very good. The samples of dresses in the museum that he designed has a very wide range and some were spectacular.

“A huge museum for a very small collection”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This must have cost a fortune to the taxpayers. Disappointing. Very well presented but a limited show.
There is a temporary exhibition of photographs of Balenciaga designs worn by famous actresses. The quality of the prints is really not up to standards.
