Beautiful photography and art as well. Museum is small in size but the visit may be long depending on the interest of the person visiting in history. How I like this kind of visiting in historical places I loved everything.
Definitely worth a visit if you have time. Lots of interesting facts going back through the centuries. more »
The audio devices are great and easy to use for children as well as adults. They are available in many languages. They do an excellent job of displaying what they have and presenting the stories. The content is fairly limited within the museum and many of the panels overlap previously stated facts or stories. If you’ve visited the castles nearby, you will already know 50% of it. Overall, the vast majority of the content covers a small handful of individual rulers over a short period of ~100 years. There is little detail before or after the period of 1818-1918, but there is some. It’s a good place to look at that history, but few of the relics or portraits are spectacular or memorable.
An interesting.place. After visiting both the nearby castles, it provided a good respite from the crowds which flock to the site. Word of advice. Prebook your tickets to avoid the long queues to see the castles. I booked in advance and had my ticket within 10mins of arrival, which saved me heaps of time from just having to stand there and wait to be served.
