I went there to see the pictures, which are really impressing. However, the stories behind them and the life of the fakers are the best. Hollywood would make a movie from each of them.

One of the most interesting museum I have ever seen. A collection of fake that will make you change your vision of art.

Complete tourist trap. A room the size of our living room with some false Rembrandts, a Picasso, and the like (and a Vermeer by Van Meegeren), but I don't even think they are the genuine false ones. Photocopies rather, with ridiculous little explanation. You can...More
