We pop in for a visit every couple of years. What was an old rundown property has been renovated into a wonderful classic modern melange of art and history cuddling together. Superbly presented, well signed and described and lit exhibits, give a wealth of visual...More

This museum is well worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare. Quite an eclectic collection of modern art and Greek and Roman armour together with a nice Egyptian collection. Nice shop where you can pick up some inexpensive souvenirs.

This is the best private art collection I have visited! A very good mix of classical and few contemporary art. We can feel the great taste and love of the art of the owner. I highly recommend this gallery to any art lover!

The museum juxtaposes ancient art with more modern pieces, and the list of 'modern' artists reads like a role-call of the top end Europeans. In practice much of the modern work is small-scale, and the matching process didn't always work for me - though sometimes...More

This museum is unique in so many ways- the juxtaposition of ancient and modern art is amazing and surprisingly effective. It's a relatively small museum which makes it easy to see the whole thing without overdoing it. It's beautifully set up on four floors, well...More
