  • Me and my son had so much fun in this museum. As soon as we got in building entrance, the staff from the front desk treat it us so nice and friendly. We just had the opportunity to go to the second floor, but there was so much see and appreciate. It was so exciting to view videos and pictures of all those tall building from the past as well of the ones that we have in the present. Great experience. I recommend it to you all.
  • Very small but was a cool experience. Was extremely hard to find for some reason. They also offer seminars for the kids but you have to book it early.
