The museum is only one tinny room with couple of work hanging on the wall. If you fill like lacing you can go there. I have been there 3 min and went.

If you admire lace, this is the best south bay location to learn more about construction and history.

I won't begin to say that I understand much of what I saw (my wife is the one interested in lace), but I'll admit freely that what I saw was amazing and certainly interesting and beautiful. They change their displays several times a year and...More

If you are into lace, the making and history, this is a nice place to visit. The displays are nice and easy to read. Most times there is a docent that will guide you around the small museum. They have a large section of books...More
