Hopefully by preserving this relic of a town, we can learn the lessons and avoid such bloody and needless cleansing. Should be essential visit for all despots. A thought provoking sad but at the same time uplifting memorial to an entire community that was wiped...More

There is a lift to the museum and there are level, paved walkways to help access the main site. Wherever there are steps there are ramps that conform to EU requirements for safe access for all.
