Love the idea behind the design concept. Very simple but subtle. Free entry and wheelchair friendly.

This shows the reality of what happened and is a interactive experience that really is worthwhile and teaches us all the lessons from history, let's hope that more people see this to make a difference to our futures.

This was my favourite place. Just so nice to sit and reflect in the silence with the soft sound of water running. A must see.
