  • Exciting museum, showing the horrors of war (especially during the first part of the exhibition) which is very essential in times we live in. Exhibition is kept in good condition so everything looks like it is in original state. I wish there were more visitors to see and learn (our couple was the only visitors, so we were able to see everything with the smallest details). Great work with the animated scenes and the bombshell in the beginning is very touching.
  • Great and overwhelming museum, definitely worth the visit. Various and interesting exhibits. A bit difficult to find however, and not much information in English. You will probably spend a couple of hours there.
