  • Beautiful folk crafts museum that highlights every day objects. If you are a ceramic fan, this is the museum for you.

A little shop with pottery is connected inside. Toilets are available as well. It is all about folks craft. The west hall opens only ever second and third Wednesday and Saturday of the month. Otherwise the museum is open everyday except Monday.
