Love this place

I visited this place on a whim as I was rather bored one fine Saturday afternoon. The place was extremely crowded with visitors and the queue to pay for the entrance ticket was quite long. It took me about 30 minutes to get my ticket but the long queue or crowds did not dampen my spirits. These people were all here to see this place and I got to know why.

It turns out that if you are a fan of anything historical, this place would be your dream come true. It had so many collections of artifacts that were very very old. Fortunately they were all preserved very well and placed in display cases for all to see. It can be hard to find a proper spot to take photos so it's adviseable if you went on the weekdays instead of the weekends instead
