From early artifacts to actual rooms to a collection of porcelain to art - this museum has many aspects. There were many interesting things related to the history of the area. The lace pieces are amazing. It's a lovely space - nicely renovated.

This is a private collection of art and history. It has some very interesting displays - worth 2 hours. Roman, Renaissance Normandy lace, explorers, porcelain - good collection of treasures for a small museum. Shops and restaurants nearby - part of a 3 site ticket.
