You can walk through in about 15 minutes. They offer a brochure in English, but none of the exhibits are. The staff was very friendly. It is right near other museums so stop by!

We really enjoyed this lovely space. Free exhibits and music. Small shop. I highly recommend it to everyone. Near center of town - close to cathedral.

The display was extremely small and uninteresting and the staff was more interested in eating their lunches.

We were walking the main street and just happened to poke our noses into this museum. From the street, it is extremely unassuming...one might think it was a restaurant or office complex. But, no, it is a small version of the museum of the same...More
