There's a lot in this museum - some nice rooms, including woodwork and painted ceilings and local artifacts, such as painted shooting targets, regalia, manuscripts, chests, pictures, maps and drawings etc. Lovely view from the tower - worth the entry from this alone.

In the centre of the Old city. Free to wander with many interesting exibits. In the celler is the torture chamber where there are on display many cruesome instruments and devices used in medival times. I didn't know the human race were such gruesome people.
