Hidden away near Freedom Square, this relatively small museum contains many items from the country's very mixed history. Items from cavemen to present day history. Much to learn in a quick afternoon. Would be helpful to have a short guided tour.

One of the most interesting places to visit in the City. There are different exhibitions at the same time, so you will always find something that interests you. I would have preferred a little bit more information about the occupation exhibition.
