  • Excellent historical place full of info and views...if uou walk up the 142 steps to the top!
  • I'm not mounted at the top of the Tower, but I visited inside and found it beautiful, very well laid out. It is a beautiful place, and the expo on animals was as exciting as fun - and free ;-)))

  • Always of very good expo which lasts long enough. The view from the top of the Tower gives a point of view at 360 of the city. 👍
