The "Norton Castle"
This home which houses the Beaulne Museum and also known as the “Norton Castle” was built in 1912. At the time, it was a secondary residence for the Norton family. Arthur-Osmore Norton, the father, had an office from where he ran his business. Transport yourself to that era by visiting the living room or in the dining room…
The objects in the collections are not all on permanent display. Most of them are kept in storage rooms and are taken out to refurbish the permanent exhibit or used in thematic exhibits.
