What a wonderful surprise! One can only visit the museum with a guide. This is because they don't have enough personnel to keep an eye on all the rooms. So they organize guided visits every one hour and fifteen minutes. The guide was very knowledgeable...More

I had the museum virtually to myself and was able to wander from room to room enjoying beautiful paintings and pictures, tapestries, furniture, china and room decorations. Very good helpful notes to most rooms in English.
