Popped in as part of city tour, the use of the service saved lots of time and got us ahead of the line. Definitely worth using and no extra cost
The queues we avoided were well worht paying the extra for and the visit itself was fascinating. It is a marvellous sight and intriguing to walk around but the displays make it. You do have to take the time to read the information that goes with each display however.
To many tourist, rain and in all that I somehow missed the panoramic view! Also I didn't except in atom museum picture of birds and so on. Really strange. Atom just from outside.
I'd recommend getting the ticket in advance - and perhaps getting there good and early. We went on a Saturday morning at 10:00 - were straight in, and by the time we came out both the ticket queue and entry queues had built up. So this is a review of the beat the ticket…
Loved both the Atomium and the Design Museum. The history and importance of the 1958 Expo in the height of the Cold War are explained with many newspaper clippings and mementos The views of the City, the light shows as you go up escalators and in center are dazzling.
