The second mezzanine floor is home to the separate museum exhibition The english Residential Interior (19th-Early 20th Centuries). The main aim of the exhibition is to show the complex of objects that come together to form the furnishings of the interior. This includes furniture, works of decorative and applied art, sculptures and objects of everyday life dating from that period, without which it is impossible to imagine the residential interior. The exhibition also attempts to illustrate the stylistical evolution of the english interior over the entire course of the nineteenth century. The resulting exposition was created after a painstaking study of the wide iconographic material, archive documents and extensive memoir literature.
