It was great to have an insight into what an authentic house would have been like in the early day, how they lived, farmed the land and survived. It takes 10 minutes to look around and it's free (donations encouraged). We had two teenaged kids...More

This was the best €3 I've spent on my holiday. This was a fab museum with literally thousands of salt and pepper shakers on display. The museum is well laid out and the exhibits are grouped by theme. There's lots of information in multiple languages...More

Had no idea from the outside this museum was so amazing. Had to be enticed in by the owner but the 3 euros entrance fee was so worth the money. I looked at a glass case containing perhaps 4 thousand exhibits but on walking round...More
