Liste ethnographic museum
A journey through local heritage taking in countless traditional objects and pieces of art.
The essence of Galician culture.
Customs, history and tradition: these three ideas form the backbone of the Liste museum. This leading centre of ethnographic heritage in Vigo offers visitors the chance to delve into Galicia's rich and varied culture. Established in what was once a detached family house, it has over two thousand objects related to all different aspects of the deep-rooted traditions of the region: artisan trades such as textiles or iron forging, carriages and wheels, light, folk medicine or the importance of rye crops. It also organises temporary exhibitions and educational activities for school groups. The estate surrounding the museum is home to various indigenous species of trees and also has a fountain, a former washing house and a hórreo; a traditional Galician building used for storing food off the ground to protect against the humid conditions.
