Museum, nice, old...think of the art and architecture. To think, you study it in school and a hours drive from home, you walk into the man's house...and he was President. An experience!!

Krüger was an amazing character, struggling for what he believes in. Interesting house to visit, different leaflets available in different languages. It takes 1 h to visit. I recommend this visit.
