Me and my son had so much fun in this museum. As soon as we got in building entrance, the staff from the front desk treat it us so nice and friendly.

It was so exciting to view videos and pictures of all those tall building from the past as well of the ones that we have in the present. Great experience. I recommend it to you all.
