“Nice Garden/Museum”

The grounds and building have been restored nicely, definitely worth a visit. The museum is dedicated to military hardware, mostly guns of various types. On the second floor there are several rooms nicely decorated according to the period. This place is a little off the beaten path, but worth stopping by
