  • The museum itself dull: remember the old jars, cans of showcases. The Museum is situated in the industrial area, away from the city centre, walk here it is better not to walk away. But it is here that happened to be a unique event, were musicians. Under the psychedelic music one person reading texts in German, and then came a sound that replaced all the sounds from the head. It seems so sounded calm. And these walls of the old city. So all is harmonious.

  • The Museum is very atmospheric, albeit small. Heap of trivia from the past very interested, and some are even very surprised. Especially memorable film responds to stylized street of the old city.
