  • Great selection of historic artefacts on the ground floor, and a fantastic gallery of cultural works above, all in a beautiful building
  • It is a beautiful, traditional house with impressive collection of objects from past centuries. We liked especially the clothing and kid toys but there is a lot more. The entrance fee is 4 EUR per adult and kids go in for free. We spent in over 1h on a cold winter day and definitely recommend.
