Travel trough 2000 years of crafts!
A Journey in Time exhibition is located in the auditorium, on the second floor of the museum. The exhibition timeline charts the most definitive phenomena in the history of crafts. The texts and images are only a tiny scratch on the surface of the interesting and diverse past of crafts. The journey starts from thousands of years back, the time before calendars or clocks, and moves towards the modern times.
