We visited with friends and family with a 2 year old toddler. The “museum” is a perfect example of how to spend a lot of money and create no value at all. First we visited the children’s play room where all we could find was...More

It's an interesting Center with some great ways of entertainment such as virtual boat riding, you can try yourself in rowing and compete with your companion. They have almost everything translated into English, although still not enough, and at the reception, they didn't know so...More

A chose to revisit this exhibition this summer because of the view from above and also because of the film about the history of the town and the lake. It is really worth to see.

We did not go inside but we did go to playground. Playground was perfect for a 4 year old! Had a nice time making rest during our roadtrip.

Excellent view, good ticket price, easy parking and a big play ground just next the tower. In bright weather you can see the orher side (east) of the balaton and got a marvellous view of the lake and the surroundings.

To tell the truth, we do not enter the tower, not the museum. I think, the entrance fee of 1500 Ft for the view is too much. I have no interest of museum, but there are no ticket only for tower. But from outside it...More

Go on a clear day, you can see the whole lake from the top. Amazing views. There is a two story exhibit with plenty of pictures, and interactive displays, like virtual sailing boats, wind platforms, ropes to tie knots. The kids have a small playroom...More
