Came on Thursday which is the free day. Come early as it can get busy with all the college kids. Very nice place to visit. Ask for the brochure in English because I had to guess at what the plaques said since I couldn't use my phone to translate. Strict policy about photos. If you have time, the cafe is worth a visit and there a lovely garden just around the corner.
The collection is ok but the building and stained glass is amazing to see! A must see if you have some time in Slamanca!
Nice setting and some of the pieces are wonderful but it lacks something. No photography allowed.
Nice collection of art deco and art noveu
Beautiful Lalique figures, art deco paintings, and antique doll collection.
