Mural painting was just too cute.

  • It's really worthy to visit this site. As you will see on the map in the museum, there are not many places like this one around the world. The museum from its exterior doesn't looks like many things can be seen inside, but you will be surprised once you enter it.
  • Great view of offshore oil platforms
  • Quite an interesting place, you can climb paths, explore rock painting, visit the Museum.
