This museum was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Its build in the old town and shows life all the way to Christ. Very impressive!

This was a very interesting look at a time past with a nice display of artifacts from different periods. They truly have tried hard to give you a flavor of various vocations, the utensils used and products created.
