By touring the permanent exhibit filled with artifacts and replicas, we learned about the 400 years of history from the Edo period to the present.

What do Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Monty Python's Life of Brian have in common? I bet you were wracking your brain to remember if Harrison Ford was in Life of Brian (he wasn’t). No, it’s more geographic – all of them were filmed in Tunisia!
