I wasn't expecting much from this visit but was amazed by the amount of details there was. We found some funny scenes too, including the "Painter & his naked model" one which was hilarious. Maybe a bit pricey though.

Comprehensive selection of models from various periods in history mostly Napoleonic. Varying degrees of quality but very interesting to a model maker. Well worth the €3 visit. Gentleman in attendance very friendly and helpful.

Okay, I (the male of the party) am quite into miniatures, so this museum was always going to tick the box for me. It is inexpensive and features a staggering variety of military miniatures in various styles and from various periods. Its strength is in...More

Passed this place many times in the past but didn't know what we were missing. This place is amazing. Young or old this is well worth a visit. The diaramas and models within them are excellent. A depiction of the battle of Waterloo in particular...More
