  • We visited once we found it. It isn’t obvious where the museum is, but once you find it it is really interesting. Lots of rooms done in the Art Nouveau style and the guides and staff were really...

  • The museum has two parts: one is the interactive exposition and another – the authentic Art Noveau style apartment. The exposition is quite unimpressive. It's interactive and all but in general, a nice booklet with all the information or a phone app could do the work pretty well. The apartment is very nice but on itself might not feel like it's worth 9 euros. I don't regret going there but I would have enjoyed it significantly better if I could pay a bit less, visit an apartment and have a nice app to tell me what is where in it, and then have all the information about the buildings as I go and can see them in the city. Worth a visit if you are interested in design and architecture.
  • The center does not have its own building and is only a small part of a bigger one. The center consists of two stories and is smaller than we expected. The underground floor is the interactive part, where you can watch a few documentaries and play some games. On the ground floor you will find the art nouveau apartment which is a very beautiful time capsule and displays multiple rooms. Without a guide, the visit will take you less than an hour and you can but tickets at the counter.
