not worth seeing as its a loose collection of memorabilia in what feels like a 1950s attempt at a museum. Stay outside and enjoy the scenery!

The small museum consists of a couple of rooms with dressed up fighting dolls and information on posters on the wall. The posters might as well been handed out as a brochure to take up and read at the top of the wall. F.ex. Ok...More

This is a great museum for young or old visitors. although it is very small its distinguishing feature is that you are encourage to play with some of the exhibits. You'll get some great photographs. Never laughed so much in a museum.

You can try to wear a lot of knight armors. Very challenging! A rare occasion in a museum when you can not only see the exhibits but also try them.
