Thanks to the museum’s location on top of the hill, over 1.3 million people use the lift every year. The old lift was an exterior structure, but the one used today rises through a tunnel in the rock. It’s not a long ascent - only 60 metres still, lasting only 30 seconds. There’s not much else to do here.
