  • I liked it but all you do is rub metal on a sheet of paper but in the end you get a nice result this is definitely not an all day thing I personally think you could spend 1-2 hours max but it was still a fun experience I recommend this to ages 6-15 because I think adults would find this boring but this is only my opinion. If you are looking for an all day thing there is a lot of cool stuff in the area and I recommend the gift shop right next to the brass rubbing centre they have a lot of cool stuff ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ƒ have a ridiculously awesome day๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹
  • If you have never rubbed brass before, then this is the place to do it. I've taken a star away for the interesting smell left on my fingertips after a session at the LBRC, but unlike the scent, the memories of my time rubbing brass will never leave me.
