I loved the old architecture of this building. I went on a Monday and was surprised how there was hardly any people there. Especially the public, being a government place. The security officer was very informative and very nice. Bring your camera.

So much history and so well taken care of. You can take pictures inside and outside of the capital. The staff is friendly and if you need directions to other places they will give you the best way to get there.
