I liked it. You can buy single ticket for the museum or combine with the treasure museum. The combine ticket cost 13 frank. The museum has a lots of story on 3 floor big. I found it very interesting and enjoyed learning about Lichtenstein story. They have a very nice and clean toilet. Souvenir shop also available.

We were there during the National Day of Liechtenstein. They had an expo about the fairytales we've read as kids, also with some art from a local artist. Amazing!

You need a couple of hours. There is so much stuff to see there about the history of Liechtenstein from thousands of years back until the last decades and also about the flora and fauna.

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
