  • Lots of interesting facts and information. The place hasn't changed for years and could probably do with an update, but it's responsible for many treasured childhood memories that have hopefully been passed on to my children.
  • Only a short attraction but it was quite interesting and only £6 per adult. It has so weird and wonderful exhibits.
  • Only rated one star because you have to Staff horrible and nasty and thay steal your money the woman at the counter even told me to do one for asking for my money back arfter my child was too scared to enter 100 minus points for makeing a 4 year old cry change the reception staff is a must Most of it is outdated anyway the outside decor has been like it for years needs a whole modern revamp to fit in with the new blackpool
  • Bit expensive for what it is. Should be discounts for families. Need to force yourself to read everything & slow down to justify the cost. Some will feel it's overpriced, but we slowed down and read everything as much as young kids (14, 11 and 6) could absorb, so OK for us. Some interesting exhibits at times but some seem a bit unnecessary or laboured. Kids bored at times when they had to reads lots. Staff at the entrance OK but not particularly friendly or helpful. Uneducated when asked about the app you can download. Older staff didn't know about it, yet right at the end it mentions it on display boards and you can unlock all content. Lady on the till in the gift shop really nice though.
  • I love it, I did read everything , very interesting and fun facts
