Built in the 1890’s, the museum can boast its true heritage with its renovated classic trains. With its state-of-the-art digital soundscape and life-like mannequins to take you back to World War II times. It is wheelchair accessible, has a tea room and plenty of parking (including buses).
Merchandise, light refreshments, soft drinks and water are available for purchase.
