An outstanding and lovely museum. So nice! Great variety of artwork, very pleasant staff, good facilities, not crowded. Free and good for a half days visit. We will return.

“Facinating Gem of a Museum, unmissable”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

We had a short time to visit this wonderful place and were given excellent advice by staff on what to see with kids in tow. It was incredible to think that this collection was mostly the original amassed collections of just 2 men. It houses exquisite works of art and objects from many different periods, places and styles including ancient Egytian to 20th-century Europe, Greek sculpture and Roman sarcophagi; medieval ivories and Old Master paintings; Art Deco jewelry and 19th-century European and American masterpieces.
We went to The Room of Wonders laid out like a 19th Century collector's home display. We saw everything from suits of armour to Faberge Eggs, Lalique hairpins to a mummified Egyptian cat, Roman coins to a small Bruegel painting.
Good website, dedicated areas of activities for kids, even small ones, lots of activities going on.
Its free and well worth a visit, we all left enthralled.

Reviewed 17 April 2012

The floral interpretation of artwork for the special exhibit was such a unique concept. Really enjoyed this small museum.
