If you're genuinely interested in history, you'll probably enjoy it. It's not the most exciting museum in the world, but it's reasonably presented and has some good detail from a locals' perspective.

I stumbled on this little gem when I was in need of a bathroom stop. The museum isn't that large bit it is packed with lots of very interesting exhibits and is well worth a visit.

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
