  • As of May 2016 it is closed. We were told it was closed a few months ago as the building is not earthquake safe and that at some time in the future it will reopen probably in another location.  more »
  • This museum has a good display of antiquities, some of which are very old. Like the bones of a prehistoric elephant. There are well made pots and figurines. It is worth spending some time here.  more »
