Things to Do

A well-laid-out museum positioned near the national monument and MONAS bus stop across the road. Entry is cheap (10,000) and there is a small cafe near one of the exits for coffee and other soft drinks. It is a multistoried building that will take you half a day to wander around. Kids can learn lots of information by having a practical and informational walkthrough.
