Three-hour opening tour of Muba 1946
Published on 1/13/2016 by
In 1946, the exhibition management and government representatives had to have a great deal of stamina. Back then, the traditional opening tour of the Muba exhibition lasted three hours.
Participants covered some eight kilometres as they walked through the 15 halls. That would be 20 laps of a running track in an athletics stadium. Today, the tour takes around 75 minutes.
