Rendez-vous at the Museum of the Folie Marco in Barr
This impressive 18th century "Folie" built by Louis-Felix Marco, an attorney and bailiff of the Seigniory of Barr, still retains its refined interior. On each of its three stories there is a large salon, and four side rooms.
- On the ground-floor (US: first floor): a dining-room decorated with fine woodwork, including Empire and Restoration furniture.
- On the first (US: second floor): an oval sitting-room with its original wall stucco, furnished in the Regency and Louix XV style.
- On the second (US: third floor): a large living-room, furnished in the style of the Rhenish Renaissance, including several 17th century Alsatian cupboards.
The Museum is furnished with high quality regional furniture, except one or two pieces made in Paris (Beneman).
There is an extensive collection of earthenware and porcelain from Strasbourg, Niderviller, Sèvres, Lunéville, eastern France, and Germany. Fine collections of local pewter pieces, and tapestries manufactured in Aubusson, as well as Alsatian stoves made in the 18th and 19th centuries.
