Wonderful visit - picked up several ideas as well as a nice necklace for the wife. Mikia (my spelling) was super informative.
Interesting place for all who likes metals, history, iron forging art pieces. Tourist guide helped me, explained all about iron forging technology, history through this kind of job. Museum is small, inside is nice, but outside is damaged (no maintenance at all on walls). Next to the museum is mountain river, you have 2-3 nice restaurants near museum.
