  • An unassuming gem, from the outside it looks like the building has not much too offer, however within these walls,lies a history of unrivaled treasures, that would make other “famous” museums green with envy. Without a doubt is the opportunity to see “the worlds oldest shoe”.....
  • The people working at the museum made me EXIT before completing the tour. The historical collection is good. But the flow is just ridiculous. The communication skills of the people working here is apalling.
