My wife suggested going here - and described it as 'an historical theme park'. My heart sank. In fact it is a brilliant museum combining the best in experimental archaeology, and living history. I've done some living history and reenactment myself, and know many of...More

There is a recent 1* review, which has its focus on rude volunteers. They might be rude if you disturb them in their siesta, when they are not assigned to an activity. Trick for one time visitors: dine at Restaurant Hertadalen, 3 corse lunch with...More
