This museum is really far from the center of town and has a limited number of exhibits. You can combine it with the anthropological museum next door. I would only venture out here if you had run out of things to explore in town.

I mean, truly, what is the point? If you don't want pictures, why bother? It is a free museum anyway. If there is no profit from admissions or any fees, why? This was about the loneliest museum I have been to in eons. One car...More
