In order to attract more visitors, there should be exhibitions, art products for selling and other activities all year round.

There were a couple of local artist artwork on display and a travelling exhibition when I was there. It is a small and cozy place where you have to remove your shoes to get in. It is also not very accessible unless you have a car. The thing good about it is: it's free!
