Once again have cash, the formidable lady at the ticket office does not accept card payment. The house is interesting and well laid out with English translations throughout. The gardens are small but somewhere to sit and plan your next step.

This is a really nice museum to visit where they can explain you a lot of things about this old merchant house. There a lot of rooms to visit. I advice to visit it with a guide that would be more interesting.

The house itself is very pretty and set in a nice garden so just walk in the grounds and enjoy. The museum itself is just some blacksmiths old gear, how's, farming equipment. I personally would not bother.
