If you think you’ve got a lot of clutter filling up the shelves at home, then just wait until you get a load of the Historical Mansion, which is the private collection of a longtime Fort family. Set in a restored Dutch house, it’s not really a museum, as many of the exhibits have price tags. Look for oodles of colonial artefacts, including collections of antique typewriters, VOC china, spectacles and jewellery.

Don't miss the places where plaster has been removed to show how the building was constructed.
