This museum was a famous residence of a local shipping magnate, designed and built by world renowned architects Barison & Schiavon in 1916. It contained many fascinating objects including pieces from Louis the XV and Marie Antoinette. The level of lavish was pretty impressive, even as a museum. Some of the architectural details included marble fireplaces with incredible tapestries and elaborately carved doorways covered in leather.
The washroom in particular was impressive. Marble details everywhere and a shower that almost defies belief with elaborate plumbing that created an omnidirectional waterfall for the user.
Of course there were paintings of all kinds as well. We favored some that were small, some that were large, some that were historical, and some that were simply interesting.
Last but not least was the sculpture. Not a lot of it, but the pieces they did feature were interesting and provocative. We were impressed once again.
