Found it on trip advisor and even though I've walked past it a dozen times I would still mist it! Its only small you'll get around it in half hour, however its still worth a look. It only costs 1 euro.

This is a very small museum with some very old (2000 years old) artefacts. 1 euro entry fee. Rainy day activity.

Nice way to spend an hour or so, gives an insight into the history of the area. When we visited a small exhibition of local art was on view upstairs -- well worth a visit. Can be found close to the clock tower.

Of you enjoy history, this is for you. Quite small. No entrance fee, and the staff wouldn't take a contribution, so bought a really interesting book

Tucked away in a quiet area uphill, this is a nice museum that is small but interesting. Only €1 to get in, so well worth a look. Well laid out and very friendly and helpful staff.
