The good news here is that you can come and go as your day allows giving you adequate time to take in all that there is to learn here. An audio device is included in your ticket, so, take it and use as you want.

If you are interested in History you can club this place with your visit to two iconic castles. But keep this towards the end of your tour. Audio guide is available in various languages and is very helpful.

I recommend that you take a quick tour of this museum between the tours to the castles in the area. I can be done in 15 min. If you wish to read all the information on the posters much longer. Not a fantastic collection but...More
