The idea of the museum is itself great. If you are old, you will recognize some things. If you are young, it is worth to take a look at it. It may even help to understand many things.

A very nice museum where you can see how schools were a century ago. The collevtions are impresive and the whole atmosphere is just right. Inexpensive and beautiful. A must see.

Not a big museum, but it was quite interesting. My daughter really enjoyed trying out writing with the pen and ink. I enjoyed the display about the student army training.

Not large, but also no large fee to enter (3.5 for adult, children till certain age for free). Nice to sit in the old class and be able to write. Especially for the ipad generation. ☺

Small but sweet, and cheap. Interesting for me as I have previously worked in a English alternative and it was interesting to see the similarities and differences. Good for kids who can learn to write with a dip pen and ink.
