Visited this museum on recommendation from hotel. Place was immaculate and with many amazing artefacts. I only spent an hour there but saw everything but you could easily spend longer if you read all the descriptions on every item. A very well looked after museum.

An easy walk from Constitution Square, housed in an old "palace," with gorgeous grounds and a beautiful restaurant. The collection is vast and is displayed in a lovely manner. Explanations are helpful for novices and experts.
