Really nice and interesting park for a walk. You can take a cup of coffee up there and start your day with such a fantastic view! Recommend!
A fantastic day out. Quite literally one of the best museum's I have ever visited. It's possible to spend an entire day there, don't expect to cover everything in a few hours. It's an extremely educational and entertaining experience with lots of interesting information and interactive exhibits about the Olympics. There's a restaurant and a lounge on the premises so you can take a break for lunch then go back on the tour. I'd recommend getting the optional audio guide as there's so many things to see and do, it's possible to get disoriented.
