Took my partner to see this bridge, was rather cold and wet and we arrived late in afternoon so many coffee shops and shops had closed for the day. The bridge was amazing to see how it still stands today and the structure how it was built

The museums are really spread out but they are fascinating. All the staff make it come really alive and every attention to detail is met.I am not a museum buff but this was something else..
