The combination of art, industry and even a bit of nature is incredibly impressive. It all works together really well. The main attraction, the recent remnants of a huge steel factory, are impressive and the museum does make a (very small) effort to emphasize some...More

If you’re looking for something different to see this is the place. Take snacks and water because you can spend up to 4 hrs depending on how much you want to see.

I think there may be a double entry for this attraction ... Allow plenty of time - it is very extensive (the circular walking tour runs for 6 kms!) and so interesting - and a photographer's delight! In 1986, these gigantic ironworks - covering an...More
