Big collection with a good Audio guide that you can zap each item with to hear all about it. Novel way to display everything and a good way to while away some time. Easy to find in the middle of the city.

I like history muesems aa a matter of course. But this seemed to be very crowded. The guide was necessary to get anything but was cumbersome to use
