Free museum. Gorgeous mansion converted into an archeological exhibit. The pieces were once the private collection of archeaologist Presley Norton. The gorgeous Andalusian-inspired house once belonged to a wealthy local family and it is now a beautiful architectural oasis in the midst of buildings and downtown noise. Breathtaking architecture complete with spider chandleriers, high vault ceilings, and Spanish-style tilework decorations.
