visit to the museum at Estavayer le Lac

After you have lived here a while, you stop laughing at translation errors, but today we found a super example of not bothering to get something checked by a native speaker.

On the guide to the Museum at Estavayer-le-Lac are the sentences,

The majority of collections were handed over by families from Estavayer and Fribourg. (Then came something priceless) The originality of this museum is due to the existing intimacy between visitors and objects....
