A most enjoyable visit. Could have spent far longer! (30th May 2015)
I love this museum as do the children with their activity back packs and toys for the children to play with throughout. Really friendly staff and the children's holiday activities were brilliant. Great value and a really interesting and well set out museum . (28th May 2015)
