  • Great museum with many of interactive parts. Loved the exhibition of mobile phones. They also have a interaktive screen where you can play some games. They also organize worshops for kids, families and elderly. You can even have a birthday party experience.
  • For the kids for free. A lot of things that today's not familiar with.
