Happy to see a castle so well renovated and an interesting ethnographic museum together. The visit was worthing the price of the ticket and we found the mix castle/museum a great strength of the place. Ideal in case of bad weather in the area!

The castle and its situation is superb. Ripa means mountain people, and there were some fascinating exhibits, for example the various nomadic tents, and wonderful embroidery on traditional clothes. But it was all a bit confusing as if the curators couldn’t decide whether to display in themes, continents or tribes. Also, a lot of the descriptions were political and hectoring, telling most of us visitors from lowland towns and cities that mountains should not be seen as our playground. It didn’t really ‘tell a story’ as the best museums do.

The castle is nice, and you have a nice view from top. But the exhibition is rather diappointing, lots of paintings that are not special, too expensive entry for that

This was a remarkable museum and a real surprise when we made the short walk up the hill from the town to visit it. The displays were informative, interesting and really enhanced by the way they were presented in this marvellous historical building. The bonus was the view of the town from the top. Highly recommended and worth a visit if you're interested in history & culture and appreciate the time and effort that has gone into the displays.

A rainy day calls for a museum and the Mountain Museum looked to be a magnificent option. Alas, not so. The first challenge is to get there in the first place. Road signs are Bad to start with, took us 20 minutes to find a place to park. Getting from the parking place to the museum is a similar challenge. There are hardly any signs pointing to the museum. Once inside, after a 15 minute climb completely unsuitable for anyone but the most fit, everything was dark. But again; inside the museum there is no way to know where anything is or how to get there; it's a complete maze inside. Then there is the plaques on the wall full of politically tainted texts; not something you'd expect in a museum. I would advice anyone against going here. It's not educational, there is hardly any interesting information, the information that is available is completely without line or structure. And that's only if you manage to get there at all....
