Fantastic collection, but bizarre and random juxtaposition of objects from different eras, displayed higgledy-piggledy in weird rooms in tired display cabinets, mixed in with some hopefully accidental humour: the shop dummies with inappropriate faces for the military uniforms, followed by the rooms where they ran...More

Although from the outside it does not appear to attract. Forget that, inside is a superb and vast collection of military memorabilia and history. Admission is a very reasonable 5 Euros. Not to be missed!
