It was a very, very interesting museum. Great if you have kids, and there's really something for everything. Exhibitions ranged from the troubles to the elements to animals. Really enjoyable and not overly time consuming. The gardens surrounding it were beautiful too. The café there was a bit expensive, but manageable I suppose. Great free attraction.

OK to visit and its free but in my opinion the presenattions are a bit dry and static. TheEgyptian mummy is worth seeing and some of the older local history is interesting too.

We visit several times a year and have done so for many years. My children always want to visit the Egyptian mummy and it's a great place to visit when the weather's not great. The exhibits and layout are great, even the building is worth going to see. Parking can be tricky so you need to think it out beforehand.... More

this was our second visit to the museum. it is full of different things from animals to gemstones, art to a section for little ones to dress up. very light and spacious and an excellent layout. has a very nice cafe, nice gift shop and free entry. I would pay admission to visit this museum and definitely recommend it.
