Not a lot of artifacts, just a few rooms opened for view. Nice experience with a wonderful little gift shop and a cafe to sit outside.

We did not eat at the museum. However, if you're looking for a great breakfast, I'd suggest Le Cafe Sursock which is about a half block away. The traditional breakfast is enough to share for two and was reasonably priced at... More
