Cost is $10 a person to see 5 rooms of boats carved out is elephant ivory. Not impressed and I was questioning why can ivory be used in this way. This museum is attached to a shop that sells specialty knives and trinkets.

If you take you time to really look at each carving, you'd be there forever. The details are ..... well there aren't words. Incredible, I guess is as best as I can express
