... just as it opened its doors, I was grateful for the warm again as this morning it was 0deg and felt like it too. It was €9 entrance fee so not too expensive, it was an ok museum but nothing special, not very interactive and probably good for school visits etc but at least I could say I had been.

It was supposed to cost 241 Million Euros and be finished in 2010, but four years later and it still isn't finished. The current estimate is an opening in 2017 at a total cost of 789 Million Euros!
