We enjoyed some exhibits, but most descriptions were in German. Very convoluted layout, some poor lighting and no AC.More

The museum is pretty nice with some interactive parts. I learned several things for sure. The bad thing to me is that it's not decorated as a castle while in a castle... Cost 5€ the entrance.
