The moat and walls are impressive but the buildings inside are average if you are short on time I wouldn't bother

A modern replica of the old palace. Nothing inside the buildings, very little information/signs about what you are seeing, dirty and poorly maintained. You are required to take off your shoes to go inside some of the central buildings and there is bat poo all...More

Nothing really impressive. The palace ground was nice to walk around. It's not extremely huge. Many of the rooms were empty except for the halls. So nothing much to see. Outside the palace but within the palace walls still is where the military is housed.

Went there on the last stretch of a field trip. We were quite tired and it’s a big place. The place is well restored/maintained but would benefit from more explanations. Maybe an Audio-guide...

Knowing that this is replica takes away some of the interest. The grounds and buildings are only fitted with a few signs so you also don't really know the significance of what you are looking at. The museum located within is so-so. If you have...More
