The ethnographic museum provides its visitors with a detailed guide showing those elements which enable them to contextualize and discover the most noteworthy aspects of the Vilariño de Conso lands. The museum offers a journey to the past via immersion where home, work, artisanal works or architecture create a real scenario of our ancestors’ lives.
The museum recovers life from within the homes of Vilariño de Conso. Thus a room from the past century or a kitchen is recreated integrating numerous real elements like Welshdressers or a hearth. Another facet developed is related to the world of labour. In this section, the utensils used in the different trades acquire special prominence; we also come across traditional tools like a carpenter’s bench, lathes or saws. Cattle farming and herding take on a new meaning via the display of garments worn to provide protection from the cold, made from wool or linen of the area. There is also a space for weaving elements like a loom or wooden rope makers. Discover hydraulic engineering via the numerous grain and fruit mills of the area. This space may incorporate among others a “rodicio” or milling machinery.
