Lovely little museum with examples of traditional dress, crafts and rural life. There is a fantastic working multi-loom, which alone makes the entrance fee worth paying!

Fascinating explanations of how cloth was made from the wool and hemp to the fine fabrics used in making the brilliant local costumes. Some of the fine lace was beautiful. There was a beautiful old loom in working order. The museum attendants were also very helpful.
