This was recommended by local friends and was worth the trip. It's inexpensive (half-price during renovations) and the exhibits were well-presented. The renovations won't last forever, and even with them they didn't affect the exhibits.

What a quaint museum! The history that is there is breathtaking at times. Probably takes an hour to go through. Reading the letters and seeing the war facts first hand really hit home.
