Nothing really to see and you won't learn anything. Part of a set of museums included in one ticket. Dreadful and purely designed to extract money. Avoid!!!!

Bought tickets at 2:30 pm and 2 of the 4 locations were closed by 5. What we saw was marginal. No hours posted and we were not informed of closing time.

There is so much to see during your time here. Take it all in. Don't rush through. We went with a small group and the tour guide was fabulous. Can't wait to visit again.

Pleasant looking entrance, but then things go downhill from there. Some boat models are present, then rooms with uninspiring dioramas, then a blackout supposed "sound & light" event. Only worthwhile aspect was the small rear garden.Avoid & do other things....

Very disappointed in this museum - not enough information on things on display, I still don't know what some of the things were (and the story behind some of the wax figures??). Waste of time & money. Tourist trap. Don't go!! Save your money!!

It was a nice visit, with interesting historical bullet points. I might not go again as it was quite pricey, especially if you do not benefit from any discounts. I would recommend getting the 4 museum ticket to make the pricetag (more) worthwhile.

The visit started off well with an interesting collection of little trinkets and weird and unusual items over the first floor, but it was all down hill from there onwards. They advertise this as a "son et lumière" visit, meaning "light and sound" but I did not hear any sounds... and I believe by "light" they must have meant they... More

It's not really a museum it's just a collection of old stuff put together so that they can charge people a lot of money. It's scame!

As a history buff I was intrigued to visit the very advertised and commercial museum. Seeing it was on the island right across the monastery, you would think it was legit. I swear it was like a Ripleys Believe it or not exhibit, at a very high cost. There are some historical artifacts in there, but totally not worth it.... More
