Haus zum Kirschgarten

Interesting
The magnificent mansion built between 1775 and 1780 for a silk ribbon manufacturer from Basel is now devoted to the Swiss way of life. The varied collections include clocks and watches from the 16C to the 19C, costumes from the 18C and 19C, earthenware and porcelain of various origins and old toys. Some rooms (kitchen, living rooms, dining room) are magnificently decorated.
