  • I thought the place smelt musty and it was hot. Burning insense made it worst in height of summer. Staff could have made more effort to be helpful  more »
  • Visit the Museum costs 5 dollars and it is not allowed to take photographs in the Museum but perfectly ok to photograph library. Cleaned and clean the toilets they had. Available for wheelchairs. Nice staff.
