Great little Museum with enough to see and go for a couple. There’s a few artefacts and interesting pieces to keep you interested before you reach the viewing platform.....and the AMAZING views are worth the climb!

A fun tower on the outside with its characters but sadly not a lot of movement except the striking on the hour. Fun to go up and get views of the town.
