Museum was very well equipped with lots of local artifacts. If you have the energy, there is a tall tower you can climb that will give you a great overview of the town and surrounding valley.

It was not what we expected. Personally found the artist to be dark and depressing. No photography is allowed and charged 7.50Euros per person.
