This is a wonderful museum - it's pretty much the nearest you can get to walking through history. Each of the rooms have modern reproductions of the furniture and textiles of the time, so instead of seeing furniture from 100s of years ago as it looks now, you see it as it would have looked then (which is different from how I had imagined) and see rooms how people would have lived in them.
