Nice, well presented museum. Gives a good picture of the area since, well let's just say a long time ago. Items well presented and explained by the curator. If lucky you can also see the cript in the next door cathedral. Friendly and informative.

I've heard lots about this museum so eventually went for a visit. Great guided tour; very interesting; much more than I thought; nicely laid out and full explanations given. Really very glad I made the trip and would encourage other visitors. Thanks.
