Really worth spending time here. One of the best armorys we've seen. Beautifully displayed. The restaurant was stunning but can't vouch for the food because we didn't stop to eat but the venue was full and certainly looked lovely.

This is a free admission to one of the most beautiful collections of classical art you can see. The house is beautifully maintained with friendly staff. You are welcome to take photos but without the flash. There is a great outdoor dining area as well.

Amazing collection. Easy to find. Private mansion and collection. Taste of the owner and his wealth have amassed a stunning display.

This is an incredible place. Really outstanding collection of just about everything - paintings, furniture, armor (3 armory rooms!!!! with really neat stuff). And, incredibly, it is all free. It also has a just wonderful cafe right in a middle attrium. I just can't say enough about this place if you are into historical collections. They have personal belongings to such famous people as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. They have some of the most famous paintings including Rembrandts, Fragonards, Gainsboroughts and more. Just a lot more than that, too - too much to go into. One thing I would caution, however - if you can take it in in 2 days instead of one, I would do that. A good alternate would be to get there in mid-morning, see half of it, eat lunch in their cafe, and then see the rest. It is like eating 10 rich chocolate cakes all at once, if you know what I mean. We took over 3 hours to see it and could have been there longer if we weren't so tired. This is longer than we spent in the British museum or the National Gallery. The rooms have lots of places to sit down and that helped (we're in our late 60's). Also, not crowded (although we went on a weekday). This is a first class attraction and I hightly recomment it. By the way, if you walk there using a map like I did, it is easy to walk right by it. The entrance is on a small street across from a small park and not on the major street that goes right behind the building and has NO signs to indicate this is the place..
