  • I am passionate about museums and this is one of the best I have visited in the porcelain sector. There are countless other priceless objects to observe, such as ceramics, costumes and all sorts of art in the region. The building's architecture itself is already a beautiful journey in the human mind. Come and see, you will love it!
  • This museum should not be missed. We stopped in the museum, expecting not much, and we were amazed. We spent three hours wandering and wondering at the exhibits. It is so well designed and presented that words cannot Express. We have traveled much and seen museums in major cities. This museum is among the best.
