This jewel of a museum, hidden inside the Artistic Industrial Academy, is worth a visit both for the magnificent building that houses it and for its treasure trove of glass, ceramics, furniture and other fine arts and antiques.

After we bought entrance tickets and entered, why every single person working there was so rude and angry at us? Maybe because they are all used to treat their "art school" students like that, so they decided why make a difference for paying adult visitors?...More
