We really enjoyed our trip to this museum. We can't wait to come back with our children. Allow 2-3 hours there is a lot to see!
If, like me, you have got a fairly short attention span this place is great, there is so much to see and its presented in such a way that everywhere you look there is something to catch your eye.
