  • It's a nice little museum. I visited a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Definitely worth checking out atleast once. Update: I visited a few months ago on my day off. There were changes made since I last visited and the place still looks really nice. I really enjoyed the salt mine room where it makes you think your going down to the salt mines. If you get chance to check this place out then go you won't regret it
