  • A House of bourgeois turn of the century 1900 in amazing condition thanks to a recent restoration. Exciting guided tour, we were all under the charm of this home.

  • Visit nice and unusual House that Mr MANTIN bequeathed to the town of MOULINS. Mr MANTIN reported objects from many countries in the world where he traveled. See, without moderation.

  • This museum has cost a fortune to the community to respect the wishes of a privileged nanti of the nineteenth century, who, at the time, has allowed to build this horrible remains next to a historic site. All this because he was a feared notable and rich. Today such abuses would be prohibited and repressed by the law. This thing is a scar in the town of Moulins, and destroyed the architectural harmony of the place. In addition, the collection of this notable from another time is poor and without much interest, just a reflection of the vulgar and ostentatious of the decadent bourgeoisie of the time taste. Let us not forget that the bourgeoisie of the time were attempting to closer and customs of the aristocrats very implanted in Moulins. Unsuccessfully of course for lack of means and education. In short a lot of wind for not big thing.
