Mostly everything at this attraction could of been read in a book. Walking around you will find placards of facts and the odd model or photo relevant to what fact you are reading about.

It cost £20 for our family of 4. There are several interesting things there but most of the vending mystic rides didn't work. My kids are 9 & 11 and they both found things they liked.

A fun diversion for the money. Plenty to make you laugh, wince and frown for an hour. We enjoyed it.

It's not bad, quite interesting and lots of facts. Would have been better if the actual exhibits and not just copies it passed an interesting 1/2 hour

We needed to kill a couple of hours so went in here for a bit. It was fun and genuinely interesting. I thought it was a little expensive for what it was. It is great for kids of all ages and adults.
