This is a little gem of a museum run by volunteers with relics from the past. It is certainly a popular venue given the number of visitors.

This place is run by local volunteers and they are very knowledgeable. This attraction is only opened for a few hours, therefore find out the opening times before going for a visit. Although there is no entry fee but a small donation is appreciated.
