Great museum. Totally free and most signs in English. There did not seem to be anyone in charge but that did not matter. Great café opposite.

We visited this museum after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. An amazing eclectic collection of items... doors, windows, kitchenware, farming and more. It is well worth a visit.

Great little museum showing how people used to live and work. Lots of interesting objects and items to look at and wonder how they used to do things and how long it must have took them. Well worth a visit.

Such a beautiful rural museum with displays showing how life used to be. A delight for all ages. The village of Steni itself is so attractive and well kept. A credit to the MUkta of the village whose brain child it was.
