  • The exhibition was set up with a lot of love and attention to detail. I loved the interactive part of it as well where you got to smell and hear and touch parts of the exhibitions. You really get immersed in a previous time and the the texts help you get a better understanding of life back then. For foreigners, everything is translated in the main exhibition in English as well so it is great for locals and Internationals alike. The student discount allowed me to enter for very little money which is always a big plus.
  • Very cute museum!
