Many a serious collector of fine art and antiquities will be familiar with M.S. Rau Antiques in New Orleans’s French Quarter. What many of them might not realize is that the greatest treasures in this renowned collection sit behind a secret door toward the back of the building.
This portal has been painted to look like a bookcase. On the other side of the trick door, the secret room contains an astounding variety of museum-caliber art and rare artifacts.
