An interesting and educational place, if you want to learn about history. the tour guide was very professional and passionate about his work. Nice place to take a family; i just wish they had accommodation as well. Friendly staff and entrance is affordable.

A wonderful afternoon with a knowledgeable guide that included young children in the demonstrations of clothes and was able to answer all of our questions about Bakone Malapa and the surrounding areas.

I visited Bakone with colleagues. We had a great time and the staff made sure that our visit was pleasurable. I believe the museum can still be improved on. some of the facilities are neglected and not enough cultural material is displayed
