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!

Very nice, small museum with lovely pieces of furniture and a few musical instruments and gorgeous grandfather clocks, all reflecting home decor fashion and taste of the petit bourgeois. From the website: "The rooms of the museum show the development of the various styles of...More

An upper middle class house from 18th and 19th century. Quite nice to show that aspect of life to our kids rather than the usual palaces or peasants extremes.
