Our hostess recommended this place for us and we found it quite charming. A pleasant relief from stuffy museums, the most interesting was the recreation of the "curiosity rooms" with interesting finds from all over the world.

From the outside this looks like a pretty insignificant building, but once inside - wow! It shows how the other half lived. The rooms are packed full of interesting things, furniture etc.

So glad we visited this home. It was occupied by a Dr and his family until 2010. Then opened as a museum in 2011. It is beautifully furnished with examples of clothing worn in the time period.
