This is a perfect museum for a dull day, it is a 10 minute walk from town. There are a variety of exhibits, from frescoes to boats, so there is something for everyone. Expect to spend about an hour and a half for 5 euros.
A great collection of fascinating objects. It isn't the most modern set up but that only added to the intrigue. We loved taking our time and peering at everything in each room. Would definitely go again.
Concise exhibition of about 50 prints (woodcuts) by Utugawa Yoshiiku, with some studies of Hokusae as well.
Other interesting elements of the museum include large scale models of historic (16th - 17th) century ships, canons, as well as maps of the world from 17th century
A fascinating museum with a lot on offer.
There are displays of animals and scientific/zoological artefacts as well as electrophysiology, anatomy and gynaecology.
It has some excellent displays of medical history
The anatomy section is by far the best with amazing wax models of the...More

The museum itself is fascinating, especially...More
