    Very special and unusual construction.

    4 sur 5 Reviews posted by Dylan Wood on 11/08/2019

    Going through the chateau was interesting and had great views to enjoy. However the door ways were dangerously small and roofs often very low. Generally an enjoyable experience however would recommend children avoid exhibit 22 as it can be quite disturbing
