Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 243 reviews

We bought the Explorer Pass with 3 attractions & an extra day was added on to the HopOn Hop Off bus. Great value & added bonus! Pass was great for all 3 attractions & was seamless on mobile app. We really enjoyed the Harbour Cruise + Hoponhopoff bus.

I loved the place, it is wonderful; I highly recommend, it is impressive and above all the tourist guide Max, friendly, attentive, always in communication, if you plan your trip, if you can ask to go with him.

This museum is fun for all ages. So much to do and see. The place is filled with interactive lessons.

Amazing experience, especially for kids. Better to go with companions rather than alone

We went on hop on bus to get to other activities and it was easy and problem free
