Sadly only were allowed to see gift shop as museum closed for 2 hours Sunday lunchtime. Kids didn't have patience to wait. Gift shop was expensive.

After taking the kids through castle and castle in the area, this can be a reward for them. A small museum packed with history of magic and some artifacts too. Don't miss the dragons!
