What people are saying:

It is said that this was the former embassy, which was later transformed into a museum. Although it is very rudimentary, the scenery here is still ok, and the scenery has a small and fresh feeling, like time has gone back in time. Playing here seems to have slowed down the entire time, making people enjoy the moment more.

    MUSEUM IS CLOSED INDEFINITELY

    I was so disappointed to arrive to the museum to find a sign that said, "Closed Indefinitely". Be sure to call before you go! They may or may not reopen.
