The venue itself is very pleasant, but the staff are utterly disinterested in serving the customers. Service is very, very slow, and chaotic. Not recommended at all.

Lovely, informative museum in a gorgeous park. Staff were helpful. I believe that the museum is particularly suitable for 4-11 year olds.
