It has a short film in an a/c room that is a good intro to the place. Plus scaled down models. We didnt get a guide but didn't see any around.

Many structures which are ancient and are still working, including the world's largest sun dial. We liked it, but aren't sure if we were traveling with friends if they would (hence the 3 rather than 4 stars). Time allotted: 30 min.

How Astronomy was studied centuries ago is simply amazing to watch. The instruments the built and mathematics used to do that astonished me.

I spent an hour and i took time to ask questions to the guide. and have a little and quiet look around. it is a very nice place indeed. two hours is a lot, then you can rest and look at all instruments in details.
