One of the best museums I've ever seen that explains a country's local crafts such as hat making, weaving, and farming. An interesting combination of modern art, taxidermy, prehistoric artifacts and paintings.

Very nice museum; lots of great artifacts. Beautifully kept building and grounds. The hosts are all very friendly and helpful. Not very exciting for kids though.
