5 Star Rating Really nice place with lots of entrances! Know well where the exposition you want to see is because you might pay for the wrong exposition.

5 Star Rating Beautiful space with amazing architecture. You may have some difficulty finding the entrance you need for the exhibit you want to see, but if you walk around the building and look for the right banners that show your exhibit, you should be fine.
