In a restored 1363 children’s hospice complex, this delightful museum examines how everyday life was lived from the 1890s to 1970s. Although not all is in English, many exhibits are self-explanatory including quaint recreated shop interiors, photos of wedding fashions, fun 1960s and ’70s rooms and the disarmingly moving collage of family home videos. There’s a traditional Puppet Show (adult €4; 2.30pm Saturday September to June) and an atmospheric old-world café with beers at old-world prices.
