Nice ethnographic museum. 3 floors of permanent exhibition include reconstructions of vilage houses, school, mills and pottery workshop, classical ethnographic exhibition themed by crafts and an excellent naive art collection. The museum offers lockers and open wardrobe. The environment is kid friendly.
