Heather’s Notes: This is one of my favorite museums. Small, elegant, usually uncrowded…it’s a great peek into the lives of the couple who left this house and their art collection to the State. You don’t need a museum ticket to visit the gorgeous café, still decorated with tapestries and gilt-framed paintings.
