While it’s true the exhibit itself was pretty small and simple, it’s still well worth a visit. Beautiful paintings (which are also for sale) were displayed throughout the Mnebhi palace, as well as some pottery. However I mostly enjoy the central courtyard which has beautifully...More

If you want to know what is inside, walk around the markets and look at the pottery and imagine it just looking a bit older / cracked. The palaces are a lot better and a fraction of the price.
