Workers willingly answered any and all questions re rope-making and history of the craft. This is a free visit. Gift shop had a number of dog leases and many articles for children.

Pretty cool how they make rope and all it's uses! If you are a dog owner, then you are going to find your perfect leash!

being able to watch the dexterity and skill of the ropemakers is fascinating. Repetitive, for sure, but being able to maintain interest and quality time & again is amazing. The information boards provide great insight into this craft.
