  • Great guide. Very interesting tour. Staff very good with kids. Recommend for a family activity.
  • Not bad, but a little basic and not much to do so short lived. Still worth a visit to see some archaeological findings.
  • Mostly aimed at children but still very informative.
  • What a fantastic experience, perfect for all the family, young and old!! We spent over a hour here, exploring the recreated dig sites, looking at artefacts and reading all the interesting facts around the museum. The experience starts with a tour, from a member of staff, our tour guide was a lovely young lady, who was great with the children, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, we truly loved it and cannot wait to go back!!!
  • Not for us I'm afraid seems to be entirely aimed at children. If you have kids give it a go the place was packed with kids looking like they were having great fun.
