Beautiful, serene, educational, convenient to Old Town are a few adjectives I would use to describe this museum. The art and antiquities in here are wonderful. If you have any interest in Asian Art or artifacts this is a must see.

We have been here in field trips and the kids absolutely love the beautiful art work and sculpture. Although I do not think babies and toddlers would enjoy, older kids and adults will definitely appreciate.
