Went there on the last stretch of a field trip. We were quite tired and it’s a big place. The place is well restored/maintained but would benefit from more explanations. Maybe an Audio-guide...

Knowing that this is replica takes away some of the interest. The grounds and buildings are only fitted with a few signs so you also don't really know the significance of what you are looking at. The museum located within is so-so. If you have...More
