The Medieval Merchant's House gives a unique view of what it was like in the medieval times and has been put together quite well and with a lot of care. It is well worth the time to wander about to get a real feel for what it must have been like to live like that.

“Great little museum, suitable for children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

It is a very well preserved medieval house, featuring original furniture, architectural details and clothing. We enjoyed this visit very much.

Note that it is open only on Sundays from 12 to 5.
