This museum has a mix of history, natural history, arts and science/technology. Great variety and selection. Spent 3 hours there, which is about as long as I spend at any museum without getting overwhelmed or numb. Top-notch.

loved this place, it's interactive and fun, a cross between history and science museum and an art gallery! reminds me of the V&A in london, which has been my favourite museum for years and years. lots of things to see, do and try, we absolutely loved it.

Really large museum, if short on time well worth researching before to be able to focus your visit on what you’d like to see as could easily spend a full day there!

Filled with all sorts of surprising and interesting exhibits including Dolly the cloned sheep, fashion through the ages and musical instruments. Check out the vistas from the roof top too
