Permanent Exhibit

Year round

The permanent exhibit tells the remarkable story of the Norton family, but mainly about Arthur-Osmore Norton’s life and how he made his fortune by manufacturing jacks for the railway.

You will meet his two children, Harry and Mary Helen, who continued in their father's footsteps by means of philanthropic activities.

The different rooms of the house reveal the exceptional interior with its typical decorations of a bourgeois home from the beginning of the 20thcentury. Note the many oak paneling, coffered ceilings and arched lintels. Transport yourself to the ambiance of that era when inside the living room or dining room.
