  • In the former Augustinian monastery is currently holding a very remarkable Renaissance exhibition. The cloister, the Church and the buildings are a visit value alone!

  • Very unique museum. Variety of collection of statues and fine art. The museum hold lots of art activities for kids and adults. All my family enjoyed the experience of sculpting our own monsters on the Halloween
  • Great museum, painting upstairs, sculpture downstairs, the building itself is worth a visit even if you don't really like the art.
  • This former convent offers a beautiful courtyard and an interesting collection of paintings, grave plates, and sculptures. Worth a visit.
  • Really interesting exhibitions.Plenty of sculptures and some fine art displayed which was great.The gift shop is the first one that I felt compelled to buy merchandise.Usually I don't! Will go again.
  • The museum is so beautiful ! When you enter the place you come to a wonderful garden directly. At first, I even didn’t realize that I’m in the museum. Recommend for visiting for sure
