  • This is a wonderful museum -not too huge but one can't complaint for it is free for everybody to go in and enjoy (You will never find that in North America or Europe!) When we went they had paintings installations scriptures all good!. We spent around 30 minutes here so definitely good side trip if you are in the area.
  • It has been free to enter each time I visited over the past few years. But don't let the cheap entry fee influence your expectations. This article museum is a must see. The exhibits are always top notch.
