Szőcs Lajos from Kőrispatak, made the first straw hat museum in the country. The straw hat museum is in a renewed peasant house. In the first room you can see different types of straw hats from the country, in the middle room are different straw ornaments, and in the last room you can see the process of straw hat making, from the harvest, to the straw hat wearing. Also here you can see and try the country’s biggest straw hat. The hats diagonal is 2 meter, and it weights 2, 65 kg. In the museums yard you can admire the amazing rock collection. There are over 600 nature made rocks with different interesting shapes. The shapes of the rocks remind you of a duck, a pigeon or a hat.
