    Highly recommended place to visit whether you're a local or a tourist. A museum showcasing many photos, artifacts stories and handicrafts in a beautiful setting. The museum is within an actual old house that has been renovated but still maintains a section where you get a glimpse of what the house and rooms were actually like back when it was inhabited.

    Tiny museum. We learn Muslim women wore colour dresses few years ago . It was beautiful, hope it will come back one day.
