While the collection itself is interesting, and the layout of the place is intuitive, which helps not miss any of the rooms, the lighting was inadequate as we could not see the paintings properly.

The museum offers a lot ot pictures and old furniture from a time long ago. The staff was polite. The ticket prices are slightly above average in our opinion but still OK. Also the garden and the basement is worth a visit. We recommend it with 4 Stars.
