What a great find! The history of violin making in the region is outlined in an interactive fashion. The gentleman at the front desk was very kind and helpful as well. I am glad we included this stop on our trip!

The man working there was really charming and happy. Eventho violins might not be my biggest interest it's important to know the history of the town. There was a temporary photo exhibition which I liked the most.
