Very small little museum but it is free. Interesting history in there. Sadly, they no longer do the Changing of the Guard which is what drew us to the museum in the first place.

A small area dedicated to a drill team and the awards they won. There are a few plaques explaining what it is about, but a little more information would be helpful. It is just a quick stop in a small shopping mall

one room with displays, unfortunately unbearably hot, since there was no cross ventilation. The penny souvenir machine is inside the restaurant nearby. The shops around have nice selections with decent pricing.
