  • We looked all over for this museum...asked people, looked on the map and could not find it. Turns out that it is closed. We were disappointed. Could not find out if or when it would reopen.  more »
  • Be careful, despite being marked on all guides and maps that provide accommodation, this museum is closed. We have searched for a good half an hour until we realized it was discontinued! But say it at least!
