  • Excellent guided tour today! Perfect in nearly every way. Ways to improve if possible: please, the clothing worn in those days by the family should be on display. Many people are interested in fabrics, their bed linen, especially since they were an affluent family. More volunteers are needed so that when us tourists arrive, lunch can be provided. The 2 gentlemen there today did an excellent job in answering any questions, but we were told that there are now only6 volunteers or so, and aging in population! These incredible people need to be supported now!
  • A wonderful original collection of furniture and artefacts in a beautiful setting
  • What a step back into time, wonderful.
