Musée du mobilier miniature

Recommended
The orangery of Vendeuvre Castle houses an exceptionally fine collection of miniature furniture, models or masterpieces. Admire the technical perfection and the meticulous attention to detail (ivory inlay, chased bronze, paintings and embroidery). 19C items include: a twelve-flight staircase, a games chest once owned by the Empress Sissi, a revolving mahogany bookcase and a pear-wood cabinet decorated with hunting scenes. Silverware and porcelain items are also displayed.
