There are many exhibits to enjoy. You can borrow an audio guide to enhance your enjoyment. There are volunteers who love to share their knowledge with visitors. An excellent museum!

It looks like a 'village museum' at first site. Interactive, crafts, shows, educative. Mainly related to trade and cultural foreign exchange, local art, old documents. A pleasant visit, especially if you are in the area.
