We took a quick stroll through the exhibition, and the guided tour. The tour itself is only in French. Our guide really nailed it. He was so sympathetic and enthusiastic and it was fun and interesting to watch him. On top of that his English was very good and he translated the main facts for us, which made the tour through this amazing house even better.
This is a very cool museum experience, bringing you into a perfectly restored late 19th C bourgeois house. Everything is original, a snapshot in time, as the owner dictated in his will over a century ago. Fascinating place, nice, knowledgeable guide who speaks English. Highly worth a trip to the delightful town of Moulin!
Very beautiful house, well restored.
Vieille demeure bourgeoise fermée depuis cent ans et ouverte à la visite il y a 10 ans. Tout à l'intérieur est resté d'époque des choses très intéressantes sont à voir comme l'électricité qui est installée (une des premières maisons de la ville de Moulins à l'avoir avec des ampoules d'époque) très bien !!
