Historic. Intimate. Unexpected. Visit the museum and become immersed in the passion Charles and Sarah Allis (Allis Chalmers) had for fine art: paintings, ceramics, bronzes and antiquities dating from 2,500 years ago await - all displayed in the marble-halled mansion built in 1911 by renowned architect Alexander Eschweiler. Stop for a rest in the beautifully landscaped courtyard after your visit.
