wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a

All museums have rules about checking backpacks and all have coat checks. I have left luggage in various coat checks without a problem. But you could ask the concierge where you are staying to call the museum to be sure.
