[nggallery id=19]

The rooms of the museum show the development of the various styles of middle class interior decoration of the 18th and early 19th centuries, from late Baroque and Rococo (Régence and Louis-Quinze) through Louis-Seize, Directoire and Empire to Biedermeier. Parts of the various collections are combined in individual rooms, for example pharmacy furnishings and fittings, kitchen furnishings, picture tiles or furniture in Directoire, Empire and Biedermeier style.
