  • I wish the government had maintained the museum with more lights and some more things. My trip to the museum ended in 15mins. A guide would be a nice idea who relates the things and add few more stories to structures put inside. Maybe a folk dance outside would add focus to place. or some ethnic work being done can be live streamed.
