Interesting museum. The medieval part especially. Unfortunately I didn't time my visit well as it seemed to be excursion day and the kids blocked whole sections. I had to wait for them to move on..... more »
There are some very interesting relics and materials. I would plan on spending 2 hours here to read and see all of the info. It's not a very big exhibit but there are many things inside. 100 years worth of history is waiting...
