In beautifully decorated salons and boudoirs, you can see period pieces of French furniture, works of art and silver ware, saved from the infernos of the First World War.
This is unique among Ypres' museums and can only be visited by making a reservation in advance. It is also possible to organise fun activities for kids, such as training to be a footman or a maid.
