Hello! This place was far more impressive then expected! It was very cool place to see and yes, it took 3-3.5 hours to complete. The 2 downside was there was hardly no description on where you where on the rock and/or items you were looking...More

I agree with the others. Many, many areas to shoot. Difficult to capture the vastness of collections so you may end up doing more close ups. Lots of Asian artifacts in the house......musical instruments and machines are... More
