small museum, but nice collection. I recommend it. in addition, it is next door to the traditional textile museum (also a must see) more »
I am taking a volunteer training and is going well so far. The staff is professional and pleasant. I also bought some books and am pleased with them and with the students that were selling them.😊
There's no words to describe what an amazing place is this museum. I encourage anyone to visit.
