Some really interesting historical pieces. The audio guide is very informative. A little museum very well set out and holds hidden delights in its nooks and crannies.

I agree with you, the MOO deserves the same time as the MUVIT for the visit, because they both have as its main theme a very important product and rich in history. Thank you so much for your kind words. Best wishes
