  • Charming and gorgeous! Definitely recommended if you're in the surrounding area
  • This is such a place that I would happily give more than 5 stars. An incredibly beautiful, large and, above all, informative system. There is so much to admire that you really need a lot of time to have seen everything. We were here for over 3 hours and saw just over half of the exhibition and buildings. A second visit is already planned. Everything is very clean and well maintained here. You can tell that a lot of loving work went into it.
