  • As a museum it's a fail. Exhibits hardly any, and when so without English labels and modern. It is rather a tour of the interior, which is quite a nice and decorated palace.

  • This is a museum that should be visited without hesitation, if only because of the calm and serenity of the place. Linger in the central room, amazing for its gigantism and beautiful décor! Many indications, historical and political, are very interesting. In short, we have a great time!

  • Came here for a visit even though there are some bad reviews. We were actually very impressed so not sure why the bad reviews. It took us about an hour to go through all the rooms and there was plenty to look at. Beautiful building.
  • The museum itself with its paintings and pictures is a little disappointing, however, the large open square in the middle of it is well worth the entry! Beautiful architecture and a great place to see!
