A must visit for families. One of Europe's most spectacular science centres, and only 8 euro for a family of 4. Fantastic, the kids were very impressed and so were we.

Something a bit different from the typical tourist places to visit. Ideal to go if the weather wasn't very good or if you wanted a reprieve from the heat.
