This museum grew out of a private collection that its owner, a patriot, donated to his nation together with the elegant mansion. That much is impressive. The objects, however, are a mixed bag. I found little artistic excellence, and much that is simply interesting or curious. Paintings are mostly unattributed to artists. Only several of the paintings are noteworthy; some are amateurish. Ground floor is noisy with five interviews with contemporary artists playing continually on the loop.
