“A gem of a place”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Not to be missed. Be sure to look at all the tiled floors and decorative doors and windows. The building is at least as interesting as the artworks. The dolls are a bit spooky, the Miro paintings and sketchbooks interresting and the garden a delight.

“Elegant art nouveau decor plus interesting modern art gallery”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This museum/gallery, just off the main square, exceeded our expectations. The house interior is itself a work of art, while there are modern art exhibits in the basement and on the top floor. There is also a small garden. Apart from the décor and art, there was a wonderfully cool, tranquil atmosphere in contrast to the bustle and heat outside. We felt it was well worth 5E per person.

“Great house, shame about the Klee”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The house is gem, with its enthralling wrought iron and plasterwork, even if there was immensely noisy building work going on to improve the museum. The garden is a treat too, peppered with an eclectic mix of sculptures - the bare-naked lady with the mirror was a surprise! The art indoors is a little disappointing, I feel, apart from good old Miro, but my one big complaint is this: the much touted Paul Klee which I specifically wanted to see, simply wasn't there, just a caption card and two hooks on an empty space. Surely this is taking minimalism too far! The invisible Georg Baselitz next to the non-Klee was another downer. The girl on the door had no idea the paintings weren't on display, and she made no attempt to find out why. Where is the Klee? Has the building work next door been used as cover for an audacious art heist? The world of art demands an answer!

“A real good find”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I would recommend this museum. It has some interesting paintings but more than that it is worth going for the beautiful interior, furnishings and exquisite tiled floors. It's in the main shopping street and is compact so you only need about 30-45 minutes to go round. Entrance is 5 Euros

“Wonderful house and art gallery”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

A wonderful house with plenty of the original furnishings on display, the lampshades in particular are exquisite. This is blended with a varied collection of modern art, the way the period furniture and modern art have been blended together is a 'work of art' in itself.
For anyone interested in architecture the house and furniture alone are well worth the 5 Euro entrance fee, we found the art work an added extra bonus.
Highly recommended.
