  • Even though the second floor was closed for renovation this museum was still worth the cost of admission. It enriched my understanding. All information was duplicated in english.

  • Absolutely phenomenal museum if you’re interested in the history of some fascinating peoples. The museum presented the pieces in a brilliant taxonomy that helped to appreciate the sophistication and advancement of the peoples. The second floor remains closed at May 12, 2022, which is one-third of the museum
  • The misc artifacts being exposed are truly marvellous and breathtaking. But they are few and the museum exhibition does not provide a clear context. Its a small exhibition. The final feeling is that you are just taking a peak to a "history" that has been forgotten, willingly or not (the "" because, i guess, there is no written documentation to it)
