London, United Kingdom
July 7, 2002
The museum shows all aspects of this life in a series of rooms on the first floor of an old eighteenth century barracks. It’s beautifully laid out, with photos of the places where things come from and examples of how they were used, and lists of places where you can go to see more in each section. There is an interesting reconstruction of one of the old beehive-shaped dry stone huts which the shepherds built in the mountains to provide shelter, and examples of the old customs and festivals along the routes, which still survive.
Only the first half is currently open, but they promised the rest would be ready by mid-July 2002.
