    To view these private museum would pay purely by the architecture from the XlX century. Unfortunately it has been definitely closed, sad! Only of the last 4 buildings from this period is for the audience lost again divined man would look from the outside like inside but it is in very poor condition. The facade crumbles only the Windows, which were designed by Gustav Eiffel, reminiscent of the heyday of the building.
