  • A bit disappointed as there was only one exhibit that was excellent. But the sculptures of that exhibit we’re fantastic.  more »
  • Not much to see in this beautiful building high on the hill, but what is there was interesting. Four rooms open during our visit. Artifacts from WWI and some very interesting carved wood.  more »
  • This isn't the largest museum, but we found it to be very well laid out and quite informative. The displays were well documented and we enjoyed our time there.  more »
