“Another Disappointment But Slightly Better Than Fire Temple”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Location of the museum was rather far from downtown. Besides a few archaeological sites, we were scratching our heads why a few goats and other animals were being kept there. There were also a couple of extremely skinny camels kept there with hardly any hair left. Their skins were exposed to strong sun and looked dying.
