This is a must see. My teenage son and I enjoyed the well preserved artifacts and the interactive displays. Give yourself at least 90 minutes to go through the museum. No picture were allowed.

One of the colonial buildings maintained well and often as function venue. Well trimmed grass & tree as well as well maintained buildings. People come normally for photography including those pre wedding pictures. Nothing much to see.

A must see if visiting Old Town. It is located just before the Old Town complex. The garden and surroundings are well maintained. Sometimes the complex is used for wedding and exhibitions. The building itself is magnificent.
