It is a long walk or a bus ride from the metro. This museum has some interesting ancient exhibits including some large gravestones. Also good information on the history of this port town. There were guards inside who tend to follow you around quite obviously....More

It's opened from 9 to 3 every day except Mondays. Well of course you could spend hours and hours in there, but I'd suggest you should plan for a visit of at least 2 hours.
