We went there for the special photo exhibition but realized that the house itself is really grand and interesting to see, and the medieval sculpture collection is fantastic.

I went to the museum to see the photographs of Magnum photographer Dennis Stock (1928-2010) which was just brilliant. This exhibition is on until 25 January 2015, don’t miss it. The permanent collection of the museum includes mainly art from the 16th and 17th century...More
