My family and I had a great time. Make sure you read the plaques, especially with the folklore. The village was the best part. There are several mini videos to watch. Beautiful view from the observation tower.

One of the best displays with good descriptions of the past. The models looked real. Pick up the audio that goes with each display. Could have stayed there for hours.
