Fodor's Review

The half-timber Old House, crisscrossed with black beams and whitewashed walls, is a fine example of domestic Jacobean architecture. Built in 1601, the house started out as a private home, before spending years as a butcher's shop and then a bank, but has been preserved as a museum since the 1930s. It's kept in the style it would have been in the early 17th century; across the three floors you can explore a kitchen, dining hall, parlor, and bedrooms complete with four-poster beds. Look for the rare wall paintings and the unusual dog's door between the nursery and master bedroom.
