The state museum is relatively new building and
was erected in 1977 only; however, its collection of around 2000
relics and antiquities originating from the province would make
a real treat for the visitors who would come here. We can see ancient
household articles, utensils, looms, hunting tools, a bridal room
and some preserved animals of the region.
