  • This place was really good. I've been there many times and I still find it interesting. The restaurant is really nice and has a play area for kids right next to the tables the kids love it there
  • Ignore the corruption and controversy and just enjoy the museum for the athletes and their accomplishments. Not sure it's worth the entrance fee. It has some good interactive parts and videos. The outdoor space is free and enjoyable on a sunny day though.
