The House of Alijn

Our everyday cultural heritage is a vast treasure-house of stories of things which pass but should never be allowed to pass into oblivion. And that’s what the House of Alijn is all about! A museum with a passion for daily life in the twentieth century. A museum with a wealth of stories to tell about the minutiae of life and life’s major events in the early twentieth century and in the post-war years.
