It was just a short walk from the Oxford Street and located on the back of the famous, yellow Selfridges. I have no idea why this place is not so well-known.

The must-see painting in this museum is, definitely Fragonard’s ‘The Swing’ which is one of the most famous paintings of French rococo style! (Right on the photo)
They don’t rent their paintings outside, so this is the only place you can see it!

Very KAWAII type of decorations and collections reminded me of the film ‘Marie Antoinette’ by Sofia Coppola. If you liked that film, this place is like a dream come true!

The building itself is a very classical town house. Café space is also very good.


Marylebone Highstreet where the bookshop I wrote in the earlier post ‘Daunt Books’ is located is a short walk from here.
以前紹介した「Daunt Books」があるメリルボーン・ハイストリートもここからすぐ。
