I was pleasantly surprised by this museum. It was well laid-out and had interesting exhibits. The location is also nice, with a view overlooking the countryside. Worth a visit!

A good visit to an actual site that was used in the second world war which is converted in a museum. A vast display cases of amours and guns used overtime.

Nice point of view to see the landscape of the area. There are some trails for short hikes and the museum is quite interesting. It is a well preserved site and the history is cleverly presented.
