  • This museum is a series of detailed reconstructions of the shops of the past. When computer technology did not exist, and that the pub was called "claims".

  • Great success that this museum mounted by two enthusiasts, collectors have redeemed this place on 4 levels to exhibit their collection. They have restored old shops with the hairdresser, the Hatter, the photographer and the school. More than hour of visit very enjoyable.

  • Two lovers have created a crazy dream: restore life to front. It's a great success story. On 4 levels there are shops in the past. A must: the slot floor. After the distillery, hides the school where the teacher invites you to take a dictation with pen!

  • I keep this Museum a great memory! It is really complete and very well done, you learn a lot of things through the tables and areas (I keep a keen memory of the "doctor" area) and all body craft (or almost) are represented! Things to do in :D
