Humbling to me as an American just how ancient their culture is. I spend approximated 3 hours here - most don't but it was very interesting.

A beautiful, intimate small museum with excellent displays and artifacts. It is well worth the hour-long visit to get a better understanding of the area's history and art.

Small but very elegant. Good presentation and well informed staff. Many items from the area was nicely displayed. Some rather rear units to be seen. Available with wheal chair.

I'm going in September with 3 friends. One needs a knee replacement and has pain with stairs. I see they have an elevator. Do you remember if that means she might be able to do it with only a few others stairs here and there? Is there some places to sit along the way? Thanks you. Mary
