Here you discover what happened before and you can just say thanks for all those before us. They made places like we know it and they worked hard for it. We are sorry for what we are not taking care of

Surprisingly interesting little museum. Quirky and friendly, with some fascinating small exhibits, displayed sensitively.

I wish I could say more, but this wasn't the best museum I've seen. Although they take you back in time and it is nice to see the good memories from yester year, I did find it somewhat boring. The museum itself is a beautiful...More
