The museum is not very big, but big enough to spend a few hours in it on a cloudy day. The exhibits were very good when I visited though.

A nice mix of items, and some of the paintings on display were gorgeous enough to have even my 10 year old son delighted. Small enough to entertain, without boring the kids. Good value at around 7 euros for the family ticket
