An amazing place to go and observe how actual laces are made. They also have a shop there. It is a little off the city center. Buy the combo ticket with the folklore museum to save money.

We bought the combined ticket (lace and folk museum) and we enjoyed the visit. Interesting and very informative with interactive activities to learn the basics! Good way to support a tradition that is finding its way in the modern times too!
