Interesting, shows archaeology from the area and surroundings, gives background to 'digs', good examples of on going work and good displays of artefacts.

The museum is already good - for those who speak local languages, but what about foreign tourists? No English, French or German.. The reception lent us a book with English translations but it wasn't really good enough.

We are so glad we came to this wonderful museum. The collection was FASCINATING, a wonderful VISUAL history lesson.
