The building is stunning, apparently modelled on the Forbidden Palace in Beijing. The contents include some truly beautiful objects as well as those of historical significance. The place is huge, spread over four floors, so you will need to be selective about what you concentrate...More

Nothing much to do in this place except for taking good photos. The place is not that big as I imagined but it was beautiful. There's an entrance fee if you decide to enter the museum.
