Some interesting displays of the town’s history. The kids enjoyed the displays of how things where in the previous century. It will take 30-45min to go through the museum. There are more display rooms downstairs, so make sure to view them a well.

I went at the Old Library and the collection of fossils is absolutely unbelievable. It's worth while to go there.

A great house to visit. It makes you realise how difficult it was to live here in the hot climate. Takes about an hour to look round the interesting house and objects.
