This museum is huge and rambling. The collection of old wrought iron shop signs you see on turning right when entering are exquisite. The rest of the museum was very disappointing. Ok, it's free. BUT there were no information boards in the exhibit rooms. Each painting or item had a small sign next to it stating who it was by and when it was created. I personally would have liked to have had some more information about what was happening at the time, how the tiems related to that time and a bit of history. It seemed to me that the collection of historical artefacts and paintings in this museum had been cobbled togther and rammed into the rooms with little thought as to what the public requires. A shame. The place didn't breathe history and excitement, it was dull and static. I didn't wish to stay long here, and we'd made a special effort to find it and walk over to the Marais area. The only redeeming exhibit was a complete shop from the Art Nouveau period, beautifully preserved, the most fabulous living wood carvings and glass peacock panel.
