The house is set over several floors and gives you a real flavour of life hundreds of years ago, from the mill to the weaving to the kitchens. It's a bit of a maze and some parts go outside. We also met a friendly kitty...More

The museum consists of a maze of rooms in 3 former town houses. The buildings themselves are of interest and the contents show typical living areas, workshop contents, occupations and crafts etc. Well worth visiting.
