  • The restoration of the house is really amazing. I'm not much of an art person, but still enjoyed our visit. Took about an hour, you could spend much longer if you want to read about each piece.  more »
  • Stumbled upon this museum while exploring. It is an extrodinary collection of art housed in the artist's former home. Very eclectic and surprises around every turn.  more »
  • Why is this place unmissable? For a couple of reasons, it's not so much a museum as one of the artists homes, therefore you get a better sense of the art in this environment, the proof of that for me is that I would have dismissed much of the artists work had I seen it in a more sterile museum atmosphere, but here it makes sense. Also the house itself is gorgeous and is a work of art, and the roof garden has one of the best views on the Mediterranean.
  • It is an impressive museum. Very-very interesting and unique place. Worth to visit absolutely. I arrived 15 minutes before closing. The nice desk office lady told me I can look around the museum quickly and because of the short time I didn't have to pay entrance fee. From the rooftop the view amazing, and atmosphere of the terrace is incredible. There are many uncountable items in the museum and -because of that- this is not a typical and classical museum. This is more than a museum!
