This place should visit those who wants to understand what means added value of live story. Itself place seems nothing interesting, but the story our guide told us did change everything. Interactive things is great, but still cannot compete with humans. :) Our visit ended up with shooting and I found myself precise to hit down some metal cans. :)... More

Very helpful staff (Lina, with her excellent English) and a very interesting, historic and informative tour. Got to fire air pellets at the end too. Bonus!

Abosolutely amazing place with extraordinary guide presenting the factory (sorry we didn't ask her name). We were late for guided tour, but friendly girl took us on a short tour and to the top of tower. Girl - YOU WERE AMAZING. That's what happens when people enjoy the job they do. And shooting was kind of relaxation :) Strongly recommended... More

We had a guided tour all over the factory for 2 h, and didn' t notice how the time passed. It was interesting to see the technology of production, hear about historyof the factory and the city in this context, to see the machines un action and to climb up to the factory tower for the main secret of production...
