  • The museum is good...you get really close to everything; you cannot get inside thr tanks for a good photo op. 25$ is nuts... The exhibits weren't done in tandem with audio or video narrative. If they charged 12.50 for this experience I'd feel it was worth the money.
  • Great place to spend some time alot of Very interesting stuff. I was lucky enough to join a Tour by Local guide. Allow at least 2/3 hours.
