We weren't going to go into this museum, but it's far better than it looks. They have video of their festival that really makes you want to be there, as well as a couple of the floats from the procession, lovely photographs and other memorabilia. Really interesting.

Nice museum with old building and old stuff. Small but lovely. Be aware of the steep and narrow stairs.
