It's free and open to public and is a great... More

Best time to visit is in the evening when the Christmas atmosphere at its best. We walked down the main street from the Opera House and found it nestled in amongst the modern shopping, a great surprise. My young niece thought she was in a Disney movie. Did not try and go in so cant comment on that.
