The museum has beautiful bells and an interesting hands-on portion where one can strike the bells to hear the different tones as well as the differences based on the metal. There is also a viewing window where the work is done.

It is not very big, but it is a chance to see how bells are made, you may actually see it happening, if not watch the video.
