The French House is an unique western style house with a pair of European buildings standing symmetrically, which is formerly built as an apartment for people from oversea. Inside the house is unified with French related works including furniture and equipments in art nouveau style. Especially the glass arts created by Emile Galle and the Daum brothers, the stars of art nouveau are the must-see because they are superior in quality. The popular handbag brand, Louis Vuitton’s old trunk made in its incipient period reminds a sea voyage in the good old days.
