  • The roald dahl section is excellent with plenty of interactive things for the kids and yourself, the other parts of the museum are also good and very interesting, I had a sandwich from the little cafe which could have been better, there's an outside area which is nice especially if its a warm day with tables and chairs and a large grassed area for picnics, there are also outdoor toys available for the kids to play with from reception free of charge ( don't forget to take them back when your finished) the staff are very pleasant, would highly recommend to anyone young or old
