The facade of this building screams for your attention. Alabaster baroque. It is as though a young girl was turned loose with whipped cream! Everything is decorated. Inside, however, the first floor is decorated with the furnishings original to the house. Murano glass chandeliers, Dresden and Meissen decorated chairs and settees, bedrooms with canopied beds and guilt edged wall panels, ceiling friezes ceiling paintings, mirrors. The colors are bright and lush. It's all a little over the top but worth the entrance fee of about 3 euros. The ceramics museum itself is interesting and the best part is the kitchen which has tile pictures, serving plates, tile decorated floors...tile everywhere you look.

This museum is in the most incredible rococo palace - worth the visit just to look at the outside! Entry charges are very reasonable and the museum has a lot of interesting items and displays about how pottery / plates etc developed over the years. It's beautiful inside too. Definitely worth a visit, we spent a couple of hours in there and we're not that interested in ceramics.

Especially if you are interested in ceramic arts, this is one you want to see. The building in which the museum is housed also makes the trip worth it.

A wonderful range of pottery and porcelain on display with very helpful explanatory cards. Very striking building too. Staff a little too "officious" for my taste.

The facade of this building is a must see even if you don't get past the doorway! There are some days when it opens for free, but the small admission fee is worth the amount of fascinating things to see. I thought it would be all ceramic tiles and was pleasantly surprised by how diverse the collection is. The staff were none to friendly the day we went, also they are very strict about photos so don't get caught out
