Very small museum. They have masks, native dress various other items. We had our own personal watcher following us around. It takes about 30 minutes to see it all.

There is not much in the museum but it is still worth a visit. The "material" collection and the way it is "exposed" is very original. Some greats stories about how some artifacts were found.

It is a very nice infrastructure to organize many cultural events from music to painting, sculptures among many others. It requires more activities to have in the agenda

Small but informative. Nice way to spend an hour or so. I especially like the exhibit on local textiles and the models of famous mud mosques. There is a cafe outside.

Hi, I'm sorry I don't know. I went on a Saturday afternoon after touring the Botanical Gardens. So I know they are open on Saturday at about 1:30 or 2. I encourage you to visit and to check out the gift shop as well.
