  • Interesting and poignant, the story of chimney sweeps! I didn't know about and it was interesting to see this piece of Italian history. The Museum has a really sad: captions on sheets of paper torn, reading uncomfortable, barely room to move, garbled the logic with which they are grouped objects. Beautiful engravings and pictures on the stairs, difficult to observe them carefully. Pity, it's an opportunity a bit wasted!

  • The visit to this Museum, I did know the true origin and history of the chimney sweep, a sad past of kids that were torn to the family. It's a very informative visit with wirless headphones and many photographs. Surely after seeing this Museum will bring in the heart this vanished figure.

  • Because, if you're in the Valley, don't overlook this place full of history and emotion. Touching the chimneysweep song that you can hear in the headphones, provided the entry, or read it before the paintings that the written report. Gear and uniforms of chimney sweeps exposed in plain view.

  • This museum is dedicated to the chimney sweepes: for ages (XVI-XX) the valley has provided young teenagers for this job in the metropolitan areas. And for some families was the only income available. The yearly event in August attracts sweepers from all over the world. The miseum in itself unfortunately is a bit poor in terms of evidences. It should be enriched and enlarged. But it deservs a visit.
  • Small but nice Museum full of objects that testify to a page of history of pride and sadness, upstairs a beautiful media path with "sounds" of chimney sweeps.
