My favorite part of this free and very interesting museum is the baptistery, a real jewel! The place is full of history and the staff is very nice. The house and gardens are also very beautiful.

It's great that it's free, but it's too bad there's absolutely no English, so tourists who don't understand French are left simply admiring the exhibits. The exhibits and the layout of the museum were nice, and I felt like my experience would have been great...More
