The house has been set up to demonstrate the art of old techniques, with numerous workshops providing an overview of the work of ancient craftsmen. A farmer’s garden showcases previously used vegetables, plants, spices and medicinal herbs. Percy Lallemang, the museum’s director, likens visiting to “entering a time machine”. “Older people relive their childhood, and younger generations explore aspects of daily life in the 19th and early 20th centuries,” he says. Adjacent is the Carriage Museum with 30 horse-drawn carriages including six from the Grand Ducal court, and accessories including head gear, lanterns and travel utensils. Visitors explore carriage building and the evolution of horsedrawn vehicles.
