We went with our teens and enjoyed seeing the bonsai and turtles. It's a small museum but peaceful. Was surprised my teens enjoyed it as much as they did. They only charged children's price for them so it cost 12 euro in total- good value

4 euros admission is a bit steep for a few rows of bonsai trees. Unless you are very keen on these exhibits best avoid. No facilities either.

OK, so the name tells you what you are going to see, and if you are really interested in bonsai, then it might be fascinating. I popped in simply because I was passing and thought it might be informative, but I’m afraid I just didn’t...More
