    We missed the demonstration, but I thought the movie about lacemakers was very well done. The lace on display was fantastic!  more »

    It is neat to see the examples of lace products. But the best bit is to go to the workrooms in the school and see people demonstrate lace making. They are very friendly and (deservedly) proud of their work. There were some old ladies with arthritic hands who could still manipulate the bobbins faster than I could follow! It takes an hour out so to go through and is definitely worth the effort.

    Really great museum on lace making, and all the more fascinating seeing the lace being painstakingly made by hand.

    The Museum is worth visiting because crucial to know the city and its traditions. The technique used, the tombolo, makes it original. Twinned with the center of the island of Burano embroidery in Italy.
