    This visit to this small museum changes exhibition without a soul. A clear and open speech allows us to discover the course of the Indian minority during the last two centuries. Human and sincere. The only regret is that the framework exposes artefacts from South Asia is. There is a confusion between the men moving and influence of ideas. But the place is worth a visit.

    The 15 minute movie they play has very limited content. Other than that this place is good.
