They charge extra for foreigners and the place is well kept and maintained. The scale is rather small and not impressive. But you can imagine how Romans enjoyed their leisure times for entertainment and learning.

People spend maximum 40 minutes at this exhibition and it's costs 80 L.E. I was not impressed. It's lovely to look at but the signs and information at each area could do with some improvement. Could have been a better experience, but still something one...More
