This is a small museum, but it provides some cultural insight and describes folk lore. You could probably see similar things in some of the larger museums.

It's a really small museum but would be on the way for most people visiting this region. Worth a stop for 5-10 mins. It captures some of the traditional ways of the region. Nothing spectacular.
