    Plans to visit this place for so long. And takes so long because it is not open on Sundays. It's amazing. All those yellow building machines. And really wanted to see this giant mining truck with tires as twice as tall as I am. They do also have a cement truck, bulldozer, forest machine, wheel loader and excavator. Theres is also a cinema, lot of huge engines and interactive expositions. Worth to visit place. Tickets are $7.Museum is open till 5 but last admission is at 3:30pm.
