  • Very informative and must go if you enjoy history. Take an audio guide and also visit the diamond fund. Many places inside prohibit photography hence can't post pics.
  • The variety of guns, its magical, a feast for the eyes. The design and dynamics of the carriages are very intricate. Big and small and you'll wonder how would it feel to be in riding like royalty and majestic. Totall worth it!
