Beautiful old furniture and nothing roped off. So, you really got the feeling of what life could have been like living there. The basement was filled with worldly curiosities. There is a booklet in different languages that have information for each indicated room. This house has actually been used numerous times throughout history for film sets because of the authenticity of the architecture and decor. We spent about an hour and a half here. Loved it!
