  • Small museum housed in an old water mill that illustrates the world tied to the water of the surrounding area and the crafts related to (Miller etc.). With pictures, old instruments and reproductions. Great for toddlers

  • We have been in this small museum with my daughters of 7 and 3 years. The guide was very friendly and prepared. There is an old mill and through an educational tour explains the importance of water for everyone and the operation of the mill. Upstairs there is an area that is the production of wool, because you used a tool that usually stood in the mill and exploited water power anyway. You also have the little hints about the phenomenon of transhumance. We like because it manages to convey with a language suitable for children, the first notions about the importance of water. The exhibition with the guide takes about half an hour.
