This is a huge museum. We only saw the applied arts section. The treasures in there are superb. You see examples of the most exquisite craft work and silver smithing. Unfortunately photography is forbidden, even without flash which is a shame as the collection of...More

There are three museums in the building. We did not have enough time, so we only went to Musical Instruments and to Applied Arts. We enjoyed both. Musical Instruments museum has a big collection of instruments starting from 1600's and old music players. There are...More

Little-visited museum, perhaps because the collection, though large, is not very well exhibited, with gloomy lighting and an unwelcoming receptionist.

We spent 2 1/2 hours here and it was not enough. The museum starts at time when home decoration was for the very wealthy and moves through to modern day. The building is great, the audio guides most interesting. The staff were most helpful, though...More
