Had a interesting visit to this museum, if you are in the area and doing more sightseeing Than a passport is a cheaper option than separate entrance fees. The bridge is interesting but unfortunately covered as it is under restoration,

Visited here on a day out. Fantastic time, beautiful location, lots to see and do. Would definitely return if we were in the area again. Kids loved it and they are not easily pleased.
