Very nice and interesting museum to visit. Not the largest museum in the world, but still worth a visit.

Some good exhibits but left underwhelmed, seemed very academic in its presentation which is no bad thing but when on holiday you don't want to do much thinking. The chain mail to try on is, well, heavy.

We'd just been to Switzerland where I'd been disappointed in the museums. Then here was a small town museum that housed an interesting collection that is put together well.
