Located in this museum is a 17th century apothecary display room, as well as ornamental furniture from different periods afterwards. There is a booklet with a self-guided tour, which is quite interesting. Probably the most interesting item on display is the collection of early dioramas....More

Lots of stuff about what a house would have looked like in 1800s. Cool tiles, kitchen good and wall paintings and hangings good. Security guards a bit over the top.
