Last november we visited this excellent small gem of a museum. It was worth every minute. Not only the very beautiful and interesting turn of the century interior, but also the kind and enthousiastic guide who showed us around made it very special. Absolutely recommendable!

This beautifully maintained private home provides an opportunity to step back into the genteel past. Admission included an expert private guide for about an hour. If you like such things as we do, it is well worth the time and money.
