The museum is currently under revamp to add new exhibits, but existing exhibits are really cool! There isn't much people around, so it basically feels like you have the whole place to yourself. Do plan ahead if you want to go there, because it will take some time to explore all 3 levels of the museum. Would love to visit it again another day!
They have exhibits as old as 5,000 years. A rare chance to see such old artifacts.
