Not to be missed, it is like entering Indiana Jones home. Great display, interesting and exciting. Dont miss the newly open cafe across the street near the ticket office.
A mere few steps from our hotel, we happened upon an incredibly interesting, informative, serene cultural center. Fortunately for us, there were only a handful of visitors.
