It is forbidden to take pictures and video recordings in the Museum although visitors are allowed to take pictures outside the museum premises. We would like to kindly request the visitors to cooperate with us and help us in enforcing these rules and regulations. The artifacts inside the Museum are important historical treasures. They are very old, and some are quite rare. Touching the artifacts also increases the risk of breaking them. Please help us preserve these historical treasures for many generations to come.
