i mean, many historical items here so it felt a bit eery. but still nice to take picture in here. they still run a cigarette factory beside the museum so visitors can observe them closely from above. and they have cafe beside the museum, that's the exiting part for me.

This the first and only one ciggarete museum that I know. Full of information about the cigarrete history. But the best thing for me is, this museum can show me how my city looks like in a century ago. Show me how nice and uniqe culture in the area of this place.
