  • Nice place to visit and learn about native culture. Kid friendly! There are short documentaries in the theater and live demonstrations on stage. There were local artists selling their handmade products which provides a wonderful opportunity to buy souvenirs.
  • Not very professionally operated, especially the kids doing the sports demo. Visit on your own, if you come on a tour, they skip a lot. Very friendly vendors. Plan on spending about 4 or 5 hours to see everything.
