  • I saw it from the outside because it was closed but I didn't see that it was nothing otherworldly. A small tower with a history which has the plate.

  • Visited on a rainy day. It is a nice little museum to spend an hour in, to appreciate the former water tower itself as well as the interesting photographic exhibitions. Friendly staff. 
  • Visit excellent museum with photo presentation, in two parts, with the possibility of buying books and poster pictures, Museum very interested and atypical to see a photo in a water tower exhibition, even if you're not amateur, the beauty of the place will not let you indifferent.
