The castle is beautiful from outside but if could turn back time I wouldn't bother paint the ticket to see it from inside. The ticket is pretty cheap but the exhibition is very small and short and not interesting enough for me.

Just look from the outside as you'll see and learn little by paying the entrance fee... In fact try going in the exit and save your money lol.
