We made a point to stop by this Museum and we were not disappointed at all by what we saw there. They have done a wonderful job in displaying and laying out the different areas and ages. Don't miss the very bottom floors!

This museum was fairly empty which is such a shame. It contains one of the most beautiful collections of artifacts of the Middle Earth that I've ever seen. Allow yourself two hours because there is so much to see. Very nice gift shop and cafe.
