Had a great day recently as there were lots of things to keep the children occupied. Very interesting museum and we treated ourselves to lunch in the cafe. Food was fresh and tasty and the service was excellent.

This was a really interesting place to visit. Lots of rooms to view. Could wander around at leisure. Lots of information to read in each room. We went on a quiet day so had the place to ourselves.
