This small museum covers a time period not frequently covered. Although not much English it is clearly understandable. We discovered the bell tower is now open so make an effort to find the entrance somewhat hidden away.

You don't have to take long here to get a return on your investment for only a euro. Take your time reading everything and just soak it all in!

This is a very small museum. It was very inexpensive to get in. Not a lot to see but for the price glad we stopped in.
