It was a small yet a good museum. The staffs were very helpful. The Liechtenstein adventure pass was accepted, still it’s needed to show them at the counters.

A lovely discovery: not too large but not too small, enough to fill our 2hrs in a very enjoyable way if you find yourself in Vaduz. This may be an one off opportunity to pet a wolf :D Make sure you check out the temporary exhibition about Pompeii - informative, lively and very interesting. There's also a charming self-service cafeteria with unbeatable prices.

I recently visited their permanent exhibit and Pompeji special show. I spent less than 1 hour in the Museum on Sunday shortly before closing and was treated very courteous and professional by a very friendly staff. I got to interact with staff members who made all the difference through their friendliness. I learnt a lot about the history of Liechtenstein and was impressed by the quality of artifacts on display. I specially like the interaction of artsy objects with historical trivia of all sorts. Not a boring museum at all, and 1 hour was definitely not enough to see it all. The staff was so friendly and apologetic of having to throw me out of museum at closing time that they offered me a courtesy ticket for the following Sunday. Which I refused to accept. The museum visit was in itself worth the while and I will be happy to visit again sometime. I highly recommend the self service walk-in coffee shop. Great pastries, great coffee, great ambience. The museum shop has lots of stuff for every taste...even Pasta Made in Liechtenstein. Great Museum. Great Staff. GREAT OVERALL experience. Keep it up.

Goryokaku Fortress

Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.

The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.

Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
