Big collection with a good Audio guide that you can zap each item with to hear all about it. Novel way to display everything and a good way to while away some time. Easy to find in the middle of the city.

This Museum is cluttered and you are given a scanner to read bar codes that explain the items such as weapons, clothing, pottery, etc but I found it tedious and the 3 floors were very crowded and tricky to figure out which bar code went...More

Well first off it's not a history museum. It's actually a warehouse with three floors of strangely curated objects behind glass. There's precious little logic in what goes where - antique shields next to showroom dummies?? - and therefore it's almost impossible to learn anything...More
