Enjoyed the systematic tour recounting U Thant's life and the documentary at the end replays the exhibition with action. Very well preserved house as well, hope they will get more funding to expand on their exhibition and educational efforts.

Visiting the U Thant House was such an inspiring experience. Small but excellent, informative exhibition set in a fully renovated house. Great opportunity to learn about this world leader and idealist, although the exhibition seems to slightly overestimate his role in the outcome of the Cuban Missile Crisis and other episodes. Still very interesting to get to know about his vision and viewpoint from his speeches and writings!

Took a taxi to see U Thant house but unfortunately it was not open, however I was permitted to walk around the grounds which were quite nice. I did manage to get a look inside through the windows. Not sure if it was only closed for the day.
