Currently, it houses the temporary exhibit "A Sense of the Past" although the fellow at admissions said this exhibit is pretty permanent. Each room in the house is decorated with furniture and antiques from the 18th and 19th century as well as pictures of a typical family from 1865 and wooden models of the house and surrounding area as they were during that time. I particularly liked the bedroom with the four poster bed and heavy bed curtains that were used to keep the heat in.
The house is very bright and well laid out and each room has lots of written information although most of it is in French. There is no admission fee although there is a box for donations if desired.
No flash pictures are allowed although they were very understanding when my flash went off by accident. The Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 a.m to 5 p.m.
