  • Too bad the front garden was visibly neglected. Pity that rubble did a fine show in the Museum. Too bad they weren't available catalogs nor explanatory guides of any kind. Shame about having given in to need access to the toilet. Too bad ... the jewels preserved here deserve better

  • The contents of the museum are very nice; lots to see and well explained. The building itself is in need of some repair and paint. Quite a history well depicted by artefacts.  more »
