The outdoor area with guiding is brilliant, the main building houses a cafe and some animated films about the history of the place. Was disappointed that there was little to do inside the building (it looks so nice on the outside) - but the cafe...More

Again, one needs a good explanation to understand the significance of this site. It is a great reconstruction of the Iron Age Farm with lots of visuals inside the “home.”
