Aden National Museum

The National Museum of Aden is located in a wonderful colonial building of “Qasr al-Sultan”, in the Crater.
The tones of the sea blue are dominant either on the exterior facades or on the interior museum rooms.
 
Founded in 1966, it is one of the greatest Yemeni museums for number of pieces and prestige.
The Aden National Museum collects a large part of the collection of Kaiky Muncherjee, a rich Indian trader living in Aden, which at the beginning of the 20th century amassed a large quantity of South Arabian antiquities, among which alabaster, bronze and gold objects.
