The views from the top are a bit basic and the exhibitions not the best but the structure itself is outstanding. Visit if only to look from outside, especially at night

The view is beautiful, the staff very friendly. The only downfall was waiting time for the lift which was over 1hour. It was definitely worth to wait. The Expos are good as well. Really liked it.
