  • Blown away by this museum. Each room is unique and tells a story. Even though my Spanish isn’t perfect, I found the whole experience to be so powerful and the quotes by the Holocaust victims brought me to tears
  • A surprising array of artworks that more or less relate to Quixote. I loved the ceiling mural and several paintings, especially the Dali.
