  • The Museum is very interesting. We went with a group of schoolchildren who came out very pleased. The monitors/guides were friendly and knew the subject well. The exhibition of vehicles is spectacular. And the model of train struck them much.

  • Nice and large museum but virtually none of the interactive exhibits work. Broken touchscreens, buttons not working,.. Lost a lot of its appeal that way.
  • Excellent museum, the building is and old textile factory and is fantastic. The computer exhibition is great. It is ideal for young people as it is very interactive. There is free parking.
  • Beautiful old textile factory building. Great architecture. Interesting things to see in the museum
  • Modernist factory changed to a very lighted museum. It's great!
  • Super ineresante
