Tiles are everywhere in this city, including underfoot. So appropriate to have a museum dedicated to the history of tiles. Very well organized and some absolutely stunnng tile work. A little out of the way but worth it.

An interesting museum with lots to see. Nice to see so many historical tiles and it was so well laid out. We had a good time. It had a very good cafe as well.

A nice look at various tiles over history. Things were beautifully displayed. They also had a nice cafe with a garden like outside seating area. Do not walk to this museum, as our group did, not a pretty part of town.
