This museum will soon close and move into their new, larger location! I can't wait to see it in its new home. Great amount of early resident relics. The rock sections of early cave etchings is good. Museum includes animal exhibits.

This was a great museum. They have some excellent displays going back to cave paintings. The arrangement is strange and the museum is very labyrinthine, but there are about 5 different sections. One is cave paintings, one is traditional lifestyle, one is a mix of...More
