A small museum brimming with interesting things. The exhibition on the Little Prince as well as the envelope exhibit were fascinating. $8 for foreigners but well worth it. Front desk workers are polite and informed. Thank you for a lovely visit.

This little cosy museum is an excellent place to visit. You will probably spend about 2 to 3 hours there. The exhibits are fun and interactive. It's suitable for families with young children. Drinking water is available near the washrooms.
