  • Well worth a visit. Four floors of interesting things to see and lots of effort put in to make it child friendly. Very pleasant helpful staff from the ladies on reception (were they twins?) and Graham who was generally making us feel at home and trying to sort out the air-con. Beautiful views from the gallery and very posh WCs on each floor. Nice cafe with tempting fare on the bottom floor. Worth the entrance fee.
  • Spent a couple of hours here, could easily have stayed longer though. Lots to see for kids and adults, very informative and interesting with lots of the things being interactive. One of the best museums we have visited. Best for kids of 5 upwards.
