Manor house is the same as years ago. Upper floor is good museum, organized mainly for younger generation. It leads you from old times up to modern mobile phones. Ground floor with some local tourist.... more »
Very nice small museum which introduces history of posts and telecommunications. You can also marry here. Or visit one of the events during the year. more »
Great museum with many of interactive parts. Loved the exhibition of mobile phones. They also have a interaktive screen where you can play some games. They also organize worshops for kids, families and elderly. You can even have a birthday party experience.
For the kids for free. A lot of things that today's not familiar with.
