Small museum near the UN that deserves attention. Dedicated to porcelain and glass, it's permanent exhibit tells in a clear and interesting way the history of porcelain, but also the relations Asia-Europe.

The building was built as a private museum that was later donated to the city. It is very beautiful. They have a permanent exhibition on ceramics and porcelain and visiting exhibits too.
