  • I like it. Very interesting facts pop up in the middle of tour. But it’s too small for a museum. Has very nice cafe and restaurant inside.  more »
  • I LOVE all types of fashion and was eager to visit this museum. It was fascinating but, not so sure it was worth the 15 euro price tag. There were two large rooms with many, many interesting purses....  more »
  • Surprisingly good museum. Went with my wife - I didn't want to go but I had a nice time. She bought some great stuff at incredibly reasonable prices. I was impressed!
  • I saw the museum accidentally and went due to curiosity. I didn't expect such a interresting collection! Very professionally exhibited, with explanation and history behind almost all pieces from the collection. The whole exhibition is divided thematically. There is a bag store by the entrance.
