The museum was a bit out of the way for me, but well worth the time and effort to get there. The building appears disappointing, a misguided design from the 1970s or 1980s, but what truly matters is the exhibits. The exhibits and textual descriptions...More

Hi 324Travel, I didn't see that in the brochure when I was there. And didn't see anyone trying one on either... Sorry that I can't be of further assistance. Perhaps you could drop them an email?
