The museum is quite small. There are some interesting things to see but all in all I think it wasn't worth the price. Maybe more interesting to visit with small children.

Very nice and 'cosy' museum telling and showing interesting matters about Africa and foreign 3rd world countries in general. Beautiful feather exhibition, very beautiful photo exhibition and all you can see about housing and living in African countries.
