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.
