What people are saying:

The appearance of this factory is very beautiful, the bullet house is placed under the glass dome of a shopping mall. However, the museum they promised in advance is hard to find. The entrance to the factory also needs to pass through several retail stores in the building, and the "museum" consists of several dimly lit and unattended small rooms. It feels more like a bait to lure people into the doors of some well-known retailers. Don't come here.

    Aesthetically pleasing

    Amazes me why they chose to preserve this building. But seeing the whole building enclosed in another building is pretty amazing.
