Splendid museum with very competent guide. The concept of one tour of max 25 persons each hour really is a great relief from many of the other crowded museums.

Loved this tour and the garden outside of the museum is beautiful. If you don't want to see the museum, walk in the garden!

This musuem is very nice. Instead of glass box and tags, it feels like you're visiting someone's private collection in their house - which is pretty much what this museum is. It's a museum of suits and armors - a private collection of Federick Stibbert...More
