Fantastic if you like tile. Nice explanations of ancient techniques, wide range of examples. Some interesting modern pieces too. Bus stop right out front (718, 742,759). Great little café with, among the standards, a passion fruit mousse, and today a baked apple in port sauce....More

If you have about 90 minutes to spare then its a fun museum to go see. The history on the tiles is very interesting and it was beautiful. Its also a great place to get away from the hot summer sun.

This museum is totally mesmerizing. The tile collection and historical presentation are super, and the setting is divine. I fell in love with the beautiful Virgin Mary in the church. All this, plus the restaurant is very good too.

This museum is in an old convent. Incredible displays to tiles over the years including how they are made. Allow several hours for a good visit.

This museum is not the tipical four walls with hanging stuff. It's a beautifull complex with included a chapel coverd in gold and tiles, not one single centemeter of empty surface, breathtaking
