Fodor's Review

Founded in 1936, the Museum of Folkcraft highlights the beauty of traditional objects used in everyday life. Housed in a series of 18th-century storefronts, the atmosphere perfectly suits the many wooden, ceramic, and laquerware objects on display. There are no detailed descriptions in English, but the elegance of the pieces on display speaks for itself.
