It's located in the Clock Tower and it's a nice museum to visit. You can learn more about the history of the city and admire the displays. You can also see how the clock mechanism works.

The museum is located in one of the towers of this walled town. There are lots of steps, but if you can climb them, you will find interesting exhibits and a great view.
