French Mansion Reopens as Time Capsule Museum

Here's something for your history-buff clients…or those who love classic design and style. A mansion in central France was locked up upon the death of its last owner more than 100 years ago. In accordance with his will, it has now been opened up as a museum, or a time capsule of what French life was like in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

According to the BBC, the house has "imported tapestries, paintings and porcelain…sculptures and wood-carvings, and on the top floor [a] personal museum of Egyptian relics, Neolithic oil-lamps, prehistoric flints and medieval locks and keys." Visitors can take a step back in time and see a perfectly preserved upper-class home that is as it was in 1905.

The BBC has a video tour of the mansion in Moulin—check it out, and encourage your clients to see this rare treasure.
