We tried to go there twice but found that they were not open. Plan your day / time carefully and maybe phone them because on the second occasion it was a closure that we could not have known about. Not impressed with this lot!!

Its about 15-20 minutes... less if you go outside of rush hour :) The Museum is along the light rail also a great option.
