This is a very nice museum, it is worth allocating 1 hour for it. Here you can see the original statue of Thomas, the boy who guards the city from the city hall tower.

A very well laid out and interesting Museum in a Merchants House. Medieval/ Wartime/ military/ early 20th century/ guns and pottery. You can walk into a medieval chimney and look to the sky.
