When Frenchman Louis Mantin died in 1905, he mandated that his house be sealed up for a century, then reopened to the public as a museum.  And now it is, effectively becoming a time capsule for all to see.

The French mansion, located in the town of Moulins, is full of artifacts and pieces that Mantin had collected over the course of his life, including paintings, tapestries, prehistoric flints, Egyptian relics and other pieces from the Medieval and Neolithic eras.
