  • Pretty nice museum. Also great for kids. Not too expensive and there is a canteen that I unfortunately did not have time to visit. What I maybe missed was tags on all items. Some items had a lot of info, but some were basically unlabelled. Anyway I can recommend this museum for everyone.
  • Nicely located restaurant and business meeting centre..
