Great little museum but with lots of items ang things to explore. You can have yourself with the traditional Chinese dress, pan gold, calligraphy and many more. The two ladies at the reception really nice and very helpful. We were the only family visited this morning. Spent over an hour in there. Kids really enjoyed it. Highly recommended when visiting the area.
Fun gold panning and amazing view from the roof.
