Would go again. It has so many interesting artifacts and information to get the your mind boggled. If you did know about it you will if you visit the littledean jail.

If you like the weird and wonderful. This place is for you. I would however say it has some explicit things on show. Not suitable for children or vulnerable people. Cash only. No cards.
