The critical point is what's really heavy listen to various long tracks, often having to calibrate the entry to the next room and having to stand at the entrance to 13 minutes for the introduction. The rooms offer very little material that should be greatly expanded, or at least to alleviate the long listening. Very good the few movies with songs and interviews, which I watched only part of a total duration of 30 minutes. Assuming that is a show only to fans, a visit which I don't recommend less than a total overhaul of the structure and its contents. Visited in August 2016.

Anyway, the place is amazing and well worth the visit!
