This little museum was a delight. Enjoyed seeing the traditional outfits displayed so well. They made great use of videos to demonstrate how braid or lace or blankets were made. Well worth a visit.

It is a small but impressive and educational museum. You can see traditional clothing types and also how they were created back in time.
