The collection is not old, but pretty decent and even astonishing especially Chinese things. The watch collection was interesting. The drawings or dishes are collectible if you are rich. The collection was completed in 1970s. The collectors must have developed a great taste.

This is a must for anyone who enjoys beautiful objects collected by one man with a passion, plenty of money and no children. The building and the contents are outstanding and you will finish the visit stimulated not drained of energy!
