  • Some great info throughout the ages. Loads for kids to interact with . And a good cafe. Make sure you donate - its worth it!
  • My Children love this museum and we have returned several times and love going back. "Epic!" is the word used by my son when asked what he thinks of the activities that get put on in the holidays. Thoroughly recommend this place!!
