  • Very beautiful Museum many old tractors, a bit disappointed because very few cars and one much in height that's we can't see them properly, otherwise it's a museum to do for lovers of engines of agricultural equipment and the old mechanical workings, nice presentation and good explanations, so ask for discount before paying after it is too late, no refund.
