  • This place is fascinating! There are great artefacts from thousands of years ago. They have been preserved very well! It would have helped a lot if the exhibition had more English to describe the artefacts.
  • Some very high quality relics in this museum. We ended up here by chance and were surprised to find this kind of quality exhibition in this hidden venue. If you like art and archeology, make sure you don't miss it!
