  • Absolutely fascinating

    "Three generations of us found a plethora of nostalgia, and interesting information. The staff (all volunteers!) were very nice and extremely knowledgeable about the history, the processes of education as it was developed and the exhibits themselves.
    This museum is a real treasure for the country. We spent the full three hours on a Sunday afternoon and could have spent more.
