A great way to spend a few hours! A must see in the city. My wife and I were not given a guide, for some reason, yet we saw everyone else with one. Despite this, we still had a good time.

The exhibition was really amazing, what a great surprise! Worth a visit if you like to see this kind of industrial shows. The Horno 3 Show is worth watching! And don't miss the visit to the top of the factory.
