  • good place to discover architecture and traditions, it's easy accessible by metro. but: no AC or ventilation, no cafe or drinking water. huge veranda is empty and no tent. the way to museum is full of garbage and ruins. entrance cost 2$ and it's free for below 16 and 60 and up.
  • Thanks our guide he gave a lot of information about building. Hope u will finish renovation and all can enjoy the museum. For me it's old place can be recommend for people who try to catch the spirit of old city. I enjoyed)
