A very nice museum that is wheelchair accessible through out and free. The tombs are worth seeing. It is easy to get to along the pedestrian streets in the old part of the city. Most of the churches are not wheelchair accessible.

The museum was disappointing. After multiple attempts the receptionist finally found two headsets that worked. The numbers on attractions did not always match with the headset and there really wasn't much there to see and we just were not impressed.
