Well presented - lots of nice stuff on display, with a good guide leaflet in multiple languages. Not a must see - but if you like history and have the time it is well worth the 5 Eu charge for admission.

This museum was a private family house with an apothecary on the ground floor (the family business). It is not a must see but it is interesting because it shows furniture, porcelain, silverware, tools and instruments for the kitchen and apothecary from the 1700 to...More

I wasn't expecting it to be so nice! Full of antiques and really gives you an idea how the upper middle class lived in the 1800s. The actual history of the building in addition to the families is also told. Worth the €5!
