  • I've always been interested in history and the world wars. But since I've been playing Battlefield 1 recently, that interest has grown even more. It's cool to see how these things look in real life, and then it hits you, this war was brutal. The Museum gives you an excellent look at the past and delivers on all areas. There are trenches and dugouts to walk through, plenty of uniforms and weapons and scattered between all that are some movies of survivors, most of which made my jaw drop.
  • Dropped in after seeing this from the road I was traveling at the time... It's absolutely stunning... Got a museum and other points of interest to see and do... Could easily spend all day but unfortunately time was limited for me on this occasion but intend to return in the future... Upon entering you see such beautiful grounds and surroundings... Fishing lake... café... museum and other buildings of interest.. Spend time in the museum or simply enjoy a relaxing time walking around the grounds and the woodlands.. Which has hiking trails... As i say limited time on this occasion but intend to return.. Well worth a visit....
