farce, radio advert made it sound like movie scenes made of Lego, famous people/monuments etc, I went in hope of seeing Luke Skywalker/Indiana Jones, or some breath taking Golden Gate bridge display, I left feeling like a paper bag, for the first time in my life, ironically on 4/7, Kate Perry was right.

Stopped in for a quick visit, I was made feel about as welcome as a shoplifter in asda. The displays are full of generalisations and the lack of direction meant I didn't know where to go. Don't waste your time going here.
