It is a place where visitors can immerse themselves in local traditions, customs, and ceremonies while touring a unique multimedia exhibition with a guide. An interactive walk through this modern space reveals exceptional multimedia arrangements transporting visitors back in time. Each step on this path unveils a new story, tale, and mystery.


An educational experience for the whole family

The last is the Guest Chamber, which has been arranged like the interior of a cottage with the basic equipment of a moderately wealthy peasant family.


Multimedia attractions await!

The tour concludes in the atmospheric basement, where multimedia exhibits captivate one's attention, available for every visitor to use individually. There are specially prepared stations with Kinect devices that offer the chance to test one's skills in preparing virtual bread, from sowing the grain to kneading the dough.

The Crafts Museum – a real treasure for craft enthusiasts. The institution is housed in an Art Nouveau building, popularly known as the "house under the clock", built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

During summer, temporary exhibitions are presented inside the tower's spire.
