Small, cosy and modest museum, that gives the essential information about the town's and the region's history, from different points of view. Contains original photos and daily items, such as household staff.

This Museum on the small side gives equal time to the indigenous history with well laid out displays containing excellent photography and tools. It was a great mid day activity.
