Bosch, Durer, Cranach and many more - so many gems at a comparatively small place. You can see them all at once, national and international superstars of arts. And have a coffee in the palace garden - it's just lovely. I did love the place.

We were dropped off here by mistake. And how glad we were. An absolutely beautiful display of period and historic Portuguese furniture displayed to perfection. And a marvellous collection of silverware and other decorative arts. Don’t miss it. Highly recommended

There is not really a good location for picnicking nearby. There is a small grassy area in front of the museum but that is about it. I did not remember seeing any picnic tables, but possibly there are a couple benches... More
