This museum is a short drive out from the city center, and located near a few monuments and a church. The museum has some interesting exhibits and artefacts and focuses mostly on the battle with the Swedish empire. Very lovely and worth the drive.

We enjoyed the museum. We liked the presentation of artifacts, weapons, paintings, pictorials, and scenes of geography and battles. The church is also well the trip inside and you can light s candle if you like.
