Unexpectedly wonderful, Russian, Chinese, Islamic and European ceramics. Sadly my visit was towards the end of the day and I really had to run through the collections. I'd say the Russian and Islamic ones facing the street are the most impressive.

This was by far one of the best museums. I felt there display case numbers could be integrated better. A bit shoddy in basement areas. Those areas which had displays and the Chinese exhibition 20th Century Ceramics were excellent. Nice gift shop and pleasant staff....More
