    The Museum is located in the center of the city in a beautiful old building. The Museum is fun, informative and free. I was surprised interactive that is, being very nice even for children. They have temporary exhibitions, which is now about food I love. You can also climb on the elevator to see the clock tower. I certainly recommend it, and the people who work there are lovely.

    A nice mixed exhibition more than a museum. Very interesting though. Also accessible for anyone as is free. The Museum also offers free Tower Clock tours. They take you up in the original lift and the views are great.

    From other reviews it's possible we missed a lot of stuff as we didn't see half of the things mentioned or photographed by other people but then we also saw no way of entering other parts while walking around. What we did see was well set out but a lot of it is about the same stuff. It is free though so that is a bonus.
