Check the hours carefully and know that the museum closes so the small staff can have their lunch. 12:30-1:30. This is in large part the personal collection of Anatole Jakovsky who went against the grain in the middle of the last century and sought out...More

Took a cab to get to the museum. Arrived 1215 to be met by a grumpy old goat of a receptionist. She directed me and my wife to leave our bags outside of the building on the floor explaining it was for "security" reasons. She...More

A small museum a short distance from the beach. Go for the art- some primitive but mostly a pleasure to see the result of creative minds at work; large fabric dolls- Mary and her lamb.watch its sharp teeth, sculptures out of metal or sea serpents...More

This muzeum has more than 600 art works, but on the exposition you find probably only 60... It is closed from 12.30 to 1 30 daily, and they are not even planning to correct the information on the web site...

A very peculiar place. Not easy to find, in a large villa planted in a nice garden full with colorful and naive (what else?) sculptures. Ample parking place, in fact - mine was the only car. I was also the only visitor and I was...More

Great collection with some interesting pieces. The information provided in English is sparse, so the context of most pieces eluded me, but the paintings themselves are worth the trip. They are worth the price of admission, too, I suppose. The grounds are well-kept, with some...More
