A rich person's home in former times has been converted into this museum. It was uncrowded. Explanations are given in English. Worth the time to have a look.

This small but well presented etnographic museum is situated in a villa dating mid 1800. It is very instructive and quite interesting - displaying how life was for a family at that time. At 200lek it is absolutely worth spending the about 30-45mins it takes.
