We'd just been to Switzerland where I'd been disappointed in the museums. Then here was a small town museum that housed an interesting collection that is put together well.

Right on the corner of Town hall Square the museum exhibition space itself is quite small, but I did kind of get the feeling that I had missed a staircase or room full of wonderful things based on other peoples reviews here. That said I...More

Located in a beautiful historical building, with an interesting selection of artefacts. You will likely hear a music from the courtyard - if not live, during the concert, then just chilling tune from the cafe you may rest at.

Very poor museum, with almost nothing of interest in it. It is not an interesting visit: Next time I will no visit it.
