Outstanding nature, very quite place, the museum is good fun for kids and adults. Visitors can see how people lived there many many years ago. Interesting exhibition.

This was an attraction that was created and very poor follow through with education and qualified hosts to manage it. The actual site isa fantastic idea as far as what it was, but I do not think that the "modern" huts that were built and the lack of real substance to educate those who visit is obvious. I have visited... More

I loved our visit to this museum. It's new and everything you expect a modern museum to be: educated yet fun, interactive and interesting. The surroundings make for a lovely walk down the small slope towards the lakeside where you can find a museum and a cafe. After that you walk through the wooden bridge towards the pillars on water...

The site was not very busy, but well-organised (ahead of a boatload of tourists, who arrived as we left). The re-created village was really interesting, and there were some interesting artefacts on display too. Great value.

This attraction is nice because it is extraordinary museum. It is nice to see and I am glad I came here, but I wasn't so amazed, because I expected that every of these little houses has something different in it - they are almost the same. Nice sight, though.

Compared with the old monasteries, this museum does not get a lot of publicity. However, we found it unusual and interesting. It is a reconstructed, prehistoric, fishing village on pylons in the water. Each hut is separately "decorated" with ideas of what the furniture of the time might be. It was fascinating, and had a feeling of genuineness. It was... More

Now that was worth seeing. Amazing replica of what was once. All of us had a good time taking photos in the huts.
