  • The Museum is new and was with us – in the off season - really barely attended what was great for us. We were in part alone in the rooms! The Museum is very nicely done, lasts not long to the go through (30 min well with a little read) and offers an interesting insight on the former monarchy and whose Kings! Only the Lady at the reception (or the lady who worked in the shop and was probably overwhelmed, because she had to let five people in the Museum) was what left a very thread smacks grumpy and very unfriendly! Otherwise the conclusion: you should take when you visit the castles in any case!
