If you are interested in archeology, this small museum is a must see. Staff of the hotel of the same name will guide you around.

The museums were both really nice. We had a very detailed and great tour from the woman at the reception. She was really interested in the topics of the museums and took a lot of time, answering all our questions and showing everything with great and catching excitement. Thanks a lot again for the great, authentic tour and the self-made drink :) It’s great if someone is so well informed and interested of a topic.
USA Traveler: My friend and I went here and we bought the excavation tour. There's a history of the coins tour too. One tour for 5$ or both for 8$. The girl was very nice and funny. She spoke English very well and gave us the tour. You'd need to have a tour guide because there's no information in the rooms, just displays. Spent maybe just over an hour there. Small shopping area. Bathrooms if needed. Very interesting and good information on the tour! Oh and there were bats on the ceiling just outside of where you entered!!!
