“Colorful Tiles and Woodwork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This house was probably very ornately decorated with furnishings and fabrics. You have to use your imagination as the place is empty. There are some paintings and exhibits that are mostly in French explanations. It is a quiet space compared to the streets outside. A lovely spot to see and admire the colorful tiles.

30 Minutes are all that is needed to see this house.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The collection itself and the museum are just okay. Nothing special. But the building itself, especially the second floor, is grand. The plaster work is superb.

“Interesting information”

We were given a booklet full of information about this delightful museum but be aware that the pages don't always correspond to the room
