  • Nice museum with honour rich history. We found the "Fortress" section with the underground corridors most enjoyable. The Sea aquarium bowed less.

  • Well restored and in a remarkable position. Cute aquarium that has nothing to do with aquariums like Genoa but still interesting. It's worth the visit.

  • A nice place to go if your in the area. There a some history to bee seen here, and you can walk around in the fort and it's underground tunnels. They have also built an aquarium in the fort which was a lot of fun to see as well.
  • Fun experience with multiple interesting historical era's. So this museum combines two period very well. The Napoleonic Era and the World War 2 period. Two of the major conflicts on the European continent. In which both this fortress was an important strategical position. First build by the the Dutch, then renovated and upscale by the French then modernized by the Germans. Just the sheer thought of all the different soldiers of those periods being station there has something to it. On top of this they have an amazing display of fish and underwater creatures. All in all learned a lot and had a good time with the family. Note worthy, it is accessible for people with less accessibility and enough places to sit down. Just don't head into the tunnels :) Staff was really friendly, I would love to come again!
