I tell you what the smugglers back in 30BC must have done a roaring trade. It was fascinating watching them working on the pains taking job of cleaning each coin... More

Some rooms were a bit dark but overall a very interesting place to visit. Can easily spend 60-90 minutes walking from floor to floor.
