This museum is another 'museum disaster' thanks to its administration under the heavy, but useless, hand of the Ministry of Culture.

I enjoyed the museum. Some of the guards were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the subjects. Some amazing old paintings of saints, some of them not looking at all saintlike. A room with old art supplies, the rocks and powders they used to make their paints. I spent a few hours happily wandering around this museum.
