Cozy place full of pictures from inside the Qanats, present everywhere in the region. No good english explainations, however with some imagination you can understand all on your own. Some books on water management are for sale at the entrance (cheap)

Bizarre museum of mostly taps and water jugs. Some interesting info on underground water canals but not really worth the entry fee.
