We did a quick tour here and found it so interesting. The authentic bottles and pictures were interesting to see. Doesn't take a lot of time to see this treasure. Recommend making time for it, particularly if you enjoy history

What a great diamond in the ruff. Very interesting history lesson and that it has not been destroyed. In use till 1960 and a lot of it saved. Interesting reads. Did not even mind leaving $2 for the pictures I took inside to support.
