  • A world class collection. A hidden secret prior to David's passing this is a world class decorative arts museum hidden inside the collector's unassuming former residence. You will see paintings, jewelry, ceramics and bronzes that are as fine as anything you would see in museums in Europe. What stands out is the sheer quality across all the different art forms, David was serious about "upgrading" his collection whenever possible and the end result is spectacular. We also really appreciated how down to earth and approachable the staff were, this is a house museum that is about allowing the public to enjoy beautiful objects without being intimidated or talked down to. Looking forward to visiting again!
  • Am amazing collection of fine art from around the world in a House Museum.
  • Edo exhibition was fabulous and the rest of the house is exquisite. I don't know why I haven't been here before, but I shall certainly be going back again
  • What a hidden gem! I went for a Japanese exhibition recently and I am definitely going back for a guided tour.
  • Beautiful home, lovely staff. I enjoyed our tour of David's lovely home and seeing and hearing about the time he spent living here.
