    Small museum, touring done in an hour. Affordable ticket, just parking on the outside, need to walk quite a bit.

    Rm2 for adult, rm1 for those 55 and older. Beautiful location on top of the hill, though folks with mobility challenges may find it difficult. Visitor parking is at bottom of hill.
