I was expecting to see more. I felt that so much information was left out. However, it is worth the visit. Located inside a convent and it is easily accessible. Sadly, this is not wheelchair accessible.

Despite being not very large, and being quite simple, this museum is quite interesting. The nuns that maintain it are nice and there is an interesting section on early medical equipment.
