What people are saying:

While it would have been interesting to take a guided tour thru here, I opted to self guide myself. The palace is beautiful, certainly showing some age, but fairly well kept. I enjoyed seeing the paintings of the old Sultans and princesses, plus there are many old photographs and tidbits to see. The upstairs furniture in the living quarters were very nice, plus the old chests. Certainly well worth the time to spend an hour or more here.

    Historical building in deplorable shape

    The museum’s building is in a very bad shape and desperately needs renovation. You may see inside pictures of Sultans and old furniture. It is not a museum worth visiting.

    Certainly different

    Fun and worth the visit but not much to see. It's just along from the old fort so it's easy to do the two together and they are both very easy to find.
