Folk Life Museum

What do things tell us that were once part of people’s everyday lives? The Folk Life Museum has been collecting, preserving and interpreting material artefacts of social life and human destinies since 1913. Originally, the focus was on rural society before the world wars. These days, the museum’s attention focuses on life in a globalised world that is redefining its roots from cultural relics.
