The building is quite big but you can visit the museum in about one hour. There are several things to see and the visit is interesting (there are also very nice paintings).

When we arrived at the museum, the staff clearly explained that during refurbishment only a small portion of the collection was visible. The salon has been hung with extra paintings to give a sense of the collection; unfortunately, the lighting is not suitable, and it...More
