An extensive collection of locally produced porcelain and ceramics from the Orient. The ticket office on the top floor is not good.

While you may not know much about porcelain, once you have visited this place, and read the details, you will appreciate how important it was to collect and show off. A multitude of wonderful examples.

Not very easy to work out the flow of this collection, but had lots of nice pieces and presentation style for pieces was good. In a beautiful setting, so look out the windows as well.

We visited on a wet day (so wanted to do something indoors) but we were very pleasantly surprised and in awe of not only the individual pieces, but the number of them on display! There were so many, and so intricate, detailed, of all different...More

I enjoyed our visit. Even though I am not that "into" porcelain, I still found myself enjoying the beauty of the items. The west side was a bit too warm to enjoy as the summer sun was beating into the beautiful windowed corridor. Had it...More
