  • Had vouchers by Alcantara deal for the restaurant of NIO and followed by a visit to the panopticon. You must admit that it is not as well done as in Madame Tussaud, but for the price of admission with lean €6 is really unbeatable! Very friendly cards seller that one tells you must shoot all the figures and, and, and. Many, sometimes deceptively real made wax figures with beautiful scenery. You should pay a visit as hamburger and also as a tourist in any case!

  • A nice exhibition with well made wax figures, also the staff was really informed about the individual pieces. Well suited for adults with children to get visually close some time history.

  • Was with the family in the panopticon. Worthwhile in connection with a city tour. But relatively narrow, if much is going on. I highly recommend the audio guide (€0.50).
