Visited this site today and found it dripping with modern technology and information. The lady receptionist could not be more helpful. The interactive experiences were magnificent. Just 5 Euro entry or 4 Euro for over 60s. Fantastic value.

A new experience worth dropping in on. The museum tells the local story of life for both the soldiers and the local people. There is a main film show and then exhibits and touch screens to give you access to more learning opportunities.More
