Had to look through the windows but the place was shut down. Went and had lunch and returned. Still shut down. Might have been interesting?? Who knows? Do not make a special effort to visit!

Very quaint museum and old train station. Very nice museum guide who told us all about the area, train and other interesting information about the area. Admission is by donation.
