"Full of History and art"

The museum is a feast for art-lovers. It is a veritable treasure trove of arts ranging from prehistoric artefacts to the display of contemporary artworks. The museum exhibits some rare antiques, jewellery, armours, paintings, statues, and archaic articles. The museum has storytelling sessions for visually-impaired visitors and a tactile gallery.
