Visited the National Tile Museum in Lisbon, Portugal – a very special one indeed, beautiful setting with a stunning collection: Museu Nacional do Azulejo
Spannendes Konzept, aber eine der grottigsten Besucherwegeführungen, die ich je erlebt habe. Ruiniert glatt die Perzeption. – (Exciting concept , but one of the worst ways to lead visitors through a show that I have ever experienced. Ruins the perception.)

Some background information from the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg here.
