I imagine this museum was like the night at the museum museum but it is not. It is like a two storey little house, but since we got out museum pass to enter so we didn't mind, just don't expect much. The collections are well...More

The museum is pretty small, but you get an audio guide that gives you loads of information (and there's one in English!). I spent almost an hour in the first room, and then another 45 minutes to an hour upstairs and in the other downstairs...More
