An excellently laid out museum with locally found artifacts. If old coins are your interest, it has a wonderful collection. There is also jewelry, statues & other fascinating pieces. Located in an old villa, the estate is now a popular park.

Some very interesting pieces that provide a glimpse into the local past. Many smaller items dominate (only sometimes are there descriptions in English), but the larger pieces are good.
