I must admit I was completely overwhelmed while touring around this place! It’s a lot bigger than I thought and there’s room after room of different themes … different periods in time … and all the details were amazing! Things moving, flashing, twirling … I couldn’t stop staring at some of them.
This is well worth seeing but I suggest you go early as it can get quite crowded.
