The museum was free. Theme was the taxes. Past machines, tax history, old money samples to be seen. Confiscated illegal items which were smuggled into the country and then taxed. Yep...interesting!

The "tax man" is perhaps one of nature's least loved human beings but this little museum casts a humorous eye upon his activities over the centuries. The museum is filled with unusual artifacts - all of which are very well explained. Between 20 and 30...More
