This collection is displayed inside an old granary which used to serve partly as a storage for cereals and beans and partly for the care of silk worms. Today it provides space for all sorts of agricultural instruments and tools from other traditional activities like metalworking and carpentry.

Free entrance. Guided tours available for a fee.
