A visit to Galeria Time Tunnel

Do you enjoy strolling to the past? Remembering events and places from your childhood is like looking into a foggy mirror. It brings back some good old memories.

  1. What an interesting Place! Your time tunnel looks a little different than our time tunnel here in our country would look. (if we had one) Nice photos.

  2. Dear Barb, TIME TUNNEL іs our country fіrst memorabilia museum. It іs actually а repository fоr collectibles аnd memorabilia.

    I believe that your country has a rich history and culture too.

    Have an Awesome Life,Barb.

  3. Hi Jane, I went there too recently. Certainly felt as if transported to another era! Loved it, but sadly it looked a little abandoned during weekdays. Hopefully it will stay for the next and next generations. If I have kids someday, I'll certainly bring them there :)
