    This Château-museum, labeled Musée de France, presents the furnishings and collections of the family who donated the estate to the city of Lisieux in 1958. Combining furniture and works of art, the interior testifies to the refinement and art of living in the 19th century and offer to discover the artistic and personal career of the painter Léon Riesener, grandson of cabinetmaker Jean-Henri Riesener and cousin of Eugène Delacroix.
