  • Nothing great from a scale perspective. The artiracts go back a few hundred years. But the way the little that is there has been preserved is commendable. The museum closes by 1400 so you may want to prioritise your visit if you are keen. You do not miss much even if you skip it. However a lot of exhibit are in the open so you could still loiter.
