The palace itself is beautiful and worth seeing, as are many of the artifacts it showcases. Yet, there is minimal curation and museographic information. So unless you hire a guide, you will just be looking at object without really knowing their importance or origin.

Beautiful Palace used by the royal families up until the 1950's. Beautiful murals through out the main rooms. Bags and cameras must be left in lockers.

Located in the heart of the old quarter, take thirty minutes to check out this museum. Be aware they are closed during lunch. There was no guide so you can rely on some English signage. It is interesting that this palace is very understated compared...More
