  • It was okay, good thing it has detailed description and historic explanation of certain builduing and status.
  • My visit here was OK, but no English so didn't really know what i was looking at most of the time. Spent about an hour inside. It was free entry for me, but i wouldn't pay to enter otherwise.
  • I went in the morning and was quiet and I enjoyed a lot!
  • Short, self-guided tour takes about an hour. Most exhibitions do not have an English translation.
  • Interesting and very well done. Informative.
