Fascinating history of the home and an amazing collection of art. Wish we could have taken a few pictures in the home (ie, of the “sake” chandelier).

A beautiful mansion but should not be characterized as a museum. There were so many “expensive” collectibles that they distracted from the mansion and each art item or collectible. Museums would rotate the collectibles so only 25% are displayed at any one time. This would allow visitors time to appreciate both the mansion and collectibles/art rather than be overwhelmed by all the “stuff.”
