Nice small museum, stuffed full of all sorts of oddities and curios. It perhaps wouldn't be particularly engaging to families with younger children, but worth going to for a quick visit

The museum is quite small and if there are a few people there it might be awkward. Sorry I don't know if dogs were banned
