This is a really good museum to vist. A very extensive collection.You could spent alot of time exploring the different displays. Pity they removed the old fountians that were out the front. It has lost a bit of its character.
An informing indidgenous section but very traditional display.
Emphasise on cateloging artifacts rather than informing on use.
A lot to see and you do need at least 2 hours.
Not really a must see but worth a visit if you have the time and inclination.
