This small museum is in the heart of the Art Nouveau district. As this used to be an apartment, it gives you a sense of what life would have been like at the turn of the century. Some of the furniture was taken from other apartments in the same block so it is authentic to the period.

If you like the architecture of the Alberta Iela, this will complement it well. The spiral staircase at the museum entrance is amazing! The decor and artifacts inside look new. Still not sure how to differentiate between Nouveu and Deco though!

If you like the 20's-30's, you will like this museum! Pretty small but really cute, give you a feeling of the era of "Art Nouveau". My only problem, that the stuff was pretty ignored me :D I've read, they are in traditional clothes in the rooms, and you can speak with them. Well, maybe because I arrived 45mins before closing,...

Had a bit of difficulty finding this place initially. The entrance is not particularly obvious. There was a small board which was not well translated into English. I somehow worked out that it said the door code is 12 so we punched that in and pressed the buzzer. Nothing. After another try the door miraculously opened!. After a shaky start... More

A charming museum with many lovely things to see. Fun to put on "period" hats for both men and women. Not a long stop but a delightful one. The Art Noveau Buildings in the area are quite stunning and should not be missed.

The staircase in the building is beautiful. It wasn't clear to me where the museum was because all the doors were closed. The apartment has been lovingly restored. Not expensive admission, was there less than an hour.

This museum takes us back to 1903 so we can view what an apartment would look like at that time.Entrance fee for me as a senior was 3.50 euro'smuseum is around the corner from Alberta Street which has some extremely beautiful buildings.

Small and a bit out of the way but interesting and especially good if you like stepping back in time.
