Het Huis van Alijn is een interessant streekhistorisch en volkenkundig museum waar de ontwikkeling van het huishouden centraal staat. In meerdere fases en ruimtes is dit in het museum goed in beeld gebracht. Een fijne plek om een hoop oude herinneringen weer eens op te halen bij het zien van de diverse objecten die tentoongesteld zijn. Aanrader, ook wat betreft prijs/kwaliteit!
