We went as a mix of adults, children and a teenager, I don't think any of us will be rushing to go back. It takes under an hour to do it all, and it's pretty much just models and video's, with the odd interactive bit. Kids weren't scared at all so don't worry about that. It would make far more... More

Four of us went....two thought it was okay and two hated it! We all agreed we would never revisit! A few interesting bits and pieces but overall very disappointing and we think the ticket price (£12) was half too much! Not for the over sensitive...some exhibits are quite macabre, which some would enjoy I personally felt a little unsettled and... More

I was gutted as there were a group of 7 of us, one of which has a mobility scooter as he can't walk far. 4 of us paid to go in and as the other 3 went to pay the lady behind the counter said that they don't allow mobility scooters/ wheelchairs etc as there is no lifts. I asked... More

Overall this attraction makes for an expensive hour to get out of the rain. We paid the discounted price and even then we felt we had to read every single little fact to make our visit worthwhile.

This is an interesting attraction and it takes about an hour to walk round if you look at everything properly. My 5 yr old was a bit bored after 20 mins but the other children ( 9,10, 11,11) really enjoyed it and it sparked lots of questions and google searches! i found it interesting and quite enjoyable. we had purchased...

Some interesting and unusual displays, which were quite interesting. However, the exhibition did not take long to get around, and could do with some modernisation and more exhibits to make the exhibition more fun.

We got a half-price deal to go in (£6 each) but the exhibits and they way they are displayed are all so old/never changed and nothing new make it seem like you're being ripped off - there's also so many coin-operated machines in there that you spend a lot more once you're inside and we lost quite a bit of...
