We have a non-spammy weekly newsletter, where we give travel tips, and exclusive content and discounts.

Not only is the installation completely free of charge to visit, but it is open 24/7! There is security there at all times to limit the number of people inside at once, but we didn't experience a long wait at all.

We suggest visiting before the sun rises or sets to be able to experience the area with different lighting. However, we personally thought it was the most magical when it was completely dark out.
