Recommend checking this place out. The tour isn't that long but you'll get lots of education and a the setup is wonderful. Our 6 year old loved it!

Really an interesting visit. The tour was very informative. The fact that the digs were preserved as excavated was awesome!

If your not interested in this kind of thing then you wont like it. Very little to touch and nothing you can actually handle. It's all viewing and information from a guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and d tons of information. we found it quite interesting and well worth our time.

Our guide to the museum was very knowledgeable and had to speak to a translator for a group of foreign tourists. He managed this very well. The mammoth dig site has a building built around... More
