'Mingei' is a composite word that is now accepted as meaning "art of the people," and this museum is surely that. Housed here, visitors will find an eclectic collection of folk art, crafts and designs from around the world including ceramics, pottery, textiles, dolls, masks, stone carvings and other decorative objects. Kid's are welcome too, every Sunday the museum features hands-on art projects, and the giant alligator sculpture at the entrance to the museum is great for climbing on. Complimentary tours take place daily at 2p sharp in the lobby. Permanent and rotating collections are on display for visitors to enjoy and encourage curiosity about other cultures.
