It's pricy (entrance fee is 400) but that place is amazing! Three levels: underworld, earth and cosmos, breathtaking legends, eye-popping interior, amazing idea! Audio guide is included. Listen from no1 to the last number! The garden is also amazing, beautiful space!

As far as I am aware it closes at 7pm but as it gets dark about an hour before that I would not leave it 'late in afternoon' to visit.

There is the parking space nearby the museum, it is located under the upper-expressway bridge. keep on left lane and observe the signage. You can have short walk from the parking space to the museum.
