  • Very interesting museum to visit. The guides know the subject perfectly. Many experiments to be carried out to better understand the soul "product" (aluminum), its origin, its elaboration etc. See you again, with or without children!
  • Very interesting museum, we spent a very good time there. Allow 2 hours. The seats provided at the entrance are very convenient and useful, do not refuse them. We will be going back to show it to friends.
