This free entry museum is a must visit for all ages and has a cafe. Very wheelchair friendly and the educational material on show is superb. In particular the Covenantor's story is superb.

Popped in for a coffee, although the museum is well worth a visit too. Great place to start if you are visiting the mausoleum, and you can book your tickets here too.
