  • spent there about 3:00! Made a break at the café in the exhibition-which is very convenient. Bypass everything several times and each time have also noticed new funny skits and foreshortening. so take your time at the examination. prigljadyvajtes' where there is a button interactive: can include moving figures in the cut scene. No small cost of course, but it's definitely worth it: and the huge square and attention to detail, as well as a sense of humor creators scenes deserve admiration!

  • Visited Grand layout with daughter 2.5 years. Of course it is still early, but excitement still sea! Gladly would like calm and porassmatrivala Exposition more closely. Of particular interest is the button that will enliven any layout part, the alternation of night and day. Decent Café. Convenient parking. A bit unpleasant constant comments of staff (though not to us)-reminiscent of the grandmothers from the Hermitage. It seems to me a bit-lean forward to reinsure themselves something to consider, you cannot immediately comment. "Pull the plug" towards the object and say nothing-zagryzut) t-shirts at the company store "he/she is punished" and exhibit "chastened child"! in the corner at the entrance to talk about specific local humor
