A well-thought-out transport museum, with plenty of interesting exhibits. To be fair, it is now rather shabby and clearly without funds to improve itself, but nicely relaxed and casual. A good way to spend a wet afternoon?

The miniature trains is something to see and enjoy. A must visit along with the other old means of transport. The small restaurant/coffeshop is also highly recommendable. Always a relaxing outing.
