Entry fee Euro 6. No-flash photography allowed. Excellent private collection of contemporary art from around the world. Very professionally curated in a pleasant restored nunnery. What made my visit even more exciting is the fact that they have a piece of my own artwork ......More

They should not have entrance fee. It's a gallery with a few paints, not a museum. There are two rooms, two sculpture and six pictures. That's all
