An unusual exhibition, it is quite small but very interesting. Eric Adamson tried all sorts of different arts, painting, furniture, jewellery, porcelain. It makes for something different, very pleasant.

Pop into this little museum and get acquainted with a very versatile artist! Our 7-year-old daughter often becomes bored in big museums, but the small size of this one was just right. She really enjoyed the children's craft area in the basement. The temporary exhibit...More

First floor had a visiting exhibition of paintings by turn-of-the-20th-century women artists; quite nice selection with several rare works. But the second floor, the "basic" collection: superb! Adamson-Eric's late impressionism was...More
