  • I am giving three stars because the staff there was very polite and welcoming, and the view from the tower is pretty. However, I find the whole live-museum concept as executed here to be rather tedious. I'd be much happier to just read the information, rather than listen to not very high quality slow paced recordings, which try perhaps a bit too hard and unfortunately not in a good way.
  • Really good museum. Kind staff and audio guide included which is so sensible. Well worth the money. Some of the models they have in there , like for instance that of the Alhambra, are quite lovely. Lovely view from the top. Dirty loo though.
