  • Although this is not a big museum, it has an interesting description of the history of the water village as well as video presentations, and you can wander through then water village from here. 
  • Nice little exhibition to visit during your tour of the water village. Tells the stories of who were the first settlers and where they came from. Free to go around and we got a free badge too :)
