  • Great little museum. The retired professor and his wife speak English very well!
  • Uninteresting
  • Fantastic Museum about woodcut with a very interesting collection with works from various part of the world. The monitors are helpful. There is also a small shop at the Museum and a beautiful garden in the back of the House open to visitation. Worth the visit.

  • A museum full of history and culture that charmed me too much. Is easy you spend hours just admiring the arts and then stay in the garden that is full of green. The price of admission is cheap enough for a space so large and so cultural, in the first room you watch a video explanation of how is made the woodcut and from this video, you can walk the halls and delight yourself with the job so well done of arti Stas. Very cool and interesting! Really a must-see tourist spot. Only if you pay attention to the time, since Google scored the Museum stayed open until 6 other'clock, being that it is the only probably a terrible game.

  • Monitors super thoughtful and helpful with visitors. Amazing for art-lovers and nice tb who studies something in communication since it shows the woodcut process present in communication and product packaging labels etc.
