  • Nice museum to visit but with several shortcomings: first, there was a huge queue on a Sunday we visited, which makes the waiting last for 1h (despite the ticket being free); second, the museum is very rich, with an incredible amount of legacy documents and items from the Insurrection that require a long time to see in reasonable depth; third, the museum does not really have a defined tour pathway, which makes it a bit confusing (also, it is inside a particularly dark building, which makes it even harder). All in all, a good place to visit, with rich content on the Insurrection but useful if you come early in the day and spend at least 2h inside.
  • Amazing setting. Very interesting form, not just flat plain facts. Been twice, both surprisingly good. On the negative side, price of a t shirt.
