Museo de Art Nouveau y Art Decó

Museum in Salamanca

Utterly unlike any other Salamanca museum, this stunning collection of sculpture, paintings and art-deco and art-nouveau pieces inhabits a beautiful, light-filled Modernista (Catalan art nouveau) house. There's abundant stained glass and exhibits that include Lalique glass, toys by Steiff (inventor of the teddy bear), Limoges porcelain, Fabergé watches, fabulous bronze and marble figurines, and a vast collection of 19th-century children's dolls (some strangely macabre), which kids will love. There's also a cafe and an excellent gift shop.
