The first thing to mention is that it is a long way out of town and I suspect public transport would be difficult. You can get a taxi there, but you will have to get your driver to wait for your return. Good luck! Another...More

It was interesting walking through what is essentially a boneyard. Maybe we were unlucky, but on day we visited all the exhibitions were closed including the Cavern. Many of the buildings had clearly been padlocked for a long time. Golf carts are a thing of...More

All days, from 9:00 to 18:00 hrs, except in winters when it opens from 9:30 to 17:00 hrs. It's easy to get a cab for the return trip, since a lot of taxi drivers used to wait outside the parking station for new customers.
