“Interesting Musuem in a "House"”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

One really can't call this a house, but more of a mega-mansion . It is a beautifully intact piece of architecture with elegant and interesting rooms ,artifacts and artwork. It is a bit overwhelming as there is so much to see but it is definitely a great place to visit for a few hours and get a good understanding of the history of this area and to look at the exquisitely preserved rooms. My favorite part is the rooms one has to wear booties over one's shoes in, to protect the lovely floors. It is fun gliding around. Afterwards walk down the street to the center of the town and and explore. When you reach the bottom of the hill/ street and make a right to go into the main square look for a small shop , on your right just as you enter the square that serves pastries and ice cream. It is a wonderful place to stop in for a pick me up rest one's feet. And the owner is a delightful man.. wish I could remember the name of the place. Gotha is a lovely town with interesting architecture.
