A small 2 roomed museum with friendly staff in the little shop/office at the back. Mainly photos but some furniture and other artifacts.

The lady in the museum was friendly. But the museum itself is made of 2 rooms with a small display and some outdated information (they even do not bother to correct out-of-date information, they just write over on the panel!!!). Still, it is FREE and...More
