  • This museum was much better than I had expected it to be for a 4 euro entry. It is very large and takes you room to room through time. It was fantastic and even has a kind of sea life/shell room! Loved it. Highly recommend if you are staying around the area.
  • Great museum with tons of info from lots of periods in history. Little hard to navigate but well worth the visit
