Museums

At museums important thing is in, though packaging can develop our imagination trying to anticipate what is inside. A Mainhouse of the 18th century restored in an exquisitive way, a village where the container and the contents are combinated, scientific genius housing, a pioneering  building or just inadulterated nature,  make Lalin ´s museums fascinating places.

The “Museo Galego da Marioneta” (Galician museum of Marionette) takes us to puppet fantastic world. You will learn the puppet influence on other world cultures with pieces that will make you travel for different continents.

In the ethnographic museum " Casa do Patrón" you can see how the life was in rural areas  through  everyday objects, you can discover a school of beginning of last century, or see how the rooms of our ancestors´ housing were.

In municipal museum “Ramon M ª Aller” there are objects related to life of this important person and to his contribution to the astronomy. In this museum you can also know the work of one of the most recognized Galician painters, Jose Otero Abeledo, better known as "Laxeiro". It is possible to enjoy temporary exhibitions of art that occurs regularly in the museum.

Deza's region hillforts, its legends and its relationship with gastronomy  gain significance in "Castrodeza", interpretation centre of Deza´s hillforts.

Finally, “Museo da Paisaxe” (Museum of Landscape), where exposed material are mountains, meadows, rivers, housings and farms ... and everything to natural size!
