  • We had a great day out and there was plenty to keep the whole family amused including an 18 month old. Free entry! Nice and clean, we will definitely be back to try out the cafe!  more »
  • Well... free to enter with a suggested donation of £3 per person, which is so under priced! It is easy worth double that and more, it’s on three levels, and takes a good couple of hours to see it all....  more »
  • My favourite place to eat for lunch when working locally. An array of freshly prepared offerings and reasonably priced too. A guaranteed repeat customer. Thank you for your quality service.  more »

  • Some lovely things but it's a shame there aren't more. The kids involvement bit was quite good ideas but old and worn out. Just needs updating. The diwali day was great but the space could have bee used better for even children participation. Toilets and cafe awful. Hope someone can help this place. It could be great.
  • Great place to take the kids for an hour. There's lots of kids activities with plenty of interesting things for adults to look at. Free entry but a small donation is advised
  • Fantastic few hours with 18 month old and 4 year old. Enjoyed the roman craft activity lots and also the trail. Lots of interactive activities and dress up too. Was good space to take own food and also good changing facilities. Just a shame mini museum wasn't up and running yet. Will be going to another summer craft event soon and booked for princess afternoon tea
  • Fantastic free museum. Easy to find with John St Car park very close by. Great staff all round. Cafe good but a lot of noisy children when we went so avoid school holidays.
  • We went on an open day when there's a lot of different thing's going on. Fantastic day lots of things to see and do the staff were lovely and the cafe was very nice too. Highly recommended.
