This is an elegant little museum in what was once a private house. Downstairs, in an annexe, there was a temporary exhibit of an extensive naturist collection. Drawings of mushrooms and butterfly collections. Interesting.
Upstairs is where the real collection is. Louis Vouland was a wealthy collector who brought together a vast number of 17th and 18th century clocks, ornaments and pieces of furniture for display in what was once his home. There are some excellent items here, in a lavish setting showing off how the wealthy French would have once lived in Avignon. Very enjoyable.
But, there are absolutely no signs or any information in English. Many times we wondered just what we were looking at and where it came from. I would have given this an Excellent rating if there had been some information in English.

This was a lovely surprise. It was easy to imagine how people lived here, with decadent furnishings and personal property throughout the rooms. We were surprised not to have to pay for the pleasure of seeing a lovely home with so much accessible history.

This was a private collection gifted to the city, so very eclectic with some surprising rooms, like the Chinese lounge which was decorated all in red. Some changes have been made since it became a museum and the bedrooms have been given up to an awkward display of porcelain. But all in all, very nice.
