It was great, interior building was marvellous, artificats and jewelleries, shoes, ornaments, weapons and grand legacy of kings and thier kingdom. Quite royal. It was great experience. But only can choose when you have more time in Maldives.

Went to take pictures of some artifacts of Maldives history. Love the architecture. The only museum in the capital. Male' city has no many places to visit. Museum is one of the few.
