  • Nice park for children. Amazing idea to put tropical garden in window-glasses room that control the heat. The museum is also nice, as we visited in three different times and also three different themes. Would recommend.
  • Really sweet little museum, free to enter. Nice cafe and garden area. However, it closed at 4 on a Saturday! I don't understand why it would close so early during peak season.
