Very nice and informative museum. It's a great rainy day activity but worth even if it’s nice out (everybody can use a break from the sun and heat once in a while, especially if you can learn a bit about the history of this wonderful island in the meantime).

But once I had managed to shed my Anglo-Saxon mentality - and chilled a bit - it is actually very good. Not loads of old artefacts etc but very... 更多
