  • Beautiful Museum, we went two days in a row to see it well. The collections presented are richissime, ranging from Europe to Asia, are well represented, with comprehensive explanations. Well done Museum, must see!

  • We visited the Museum at once - starting two hours -, following our children who had received a booklet at the entrance to guide them in the visit (they have reported the home and continue coloring him etc...). The Museum is great well arranged, with an incredibly educational course: it starts with the manufacturing of porcelain (kids), then we discover the treasures of the historical Museum to finish in the renovated part, where are exposed parts of porcelain beauty. On the way out we understand why we can speak of works of art. They spent them also well organized and interesting Museum for Impressionist paintings! A nice surprise.
