This is an incredibly interesting place to visit. We were limited for time as we had a flight to catch in the evening but you could easily spend a hole day here.
Initially did the tour of the cave system where the remains of Mrs Ples were found and they are still finding ancient remains plus lots of stalactites and stalagmites. There are lots of warnings before doing the tour about how you have to crawl and bend low and not to do if you are claustrophobic, have high BP etc. I am fairly claustrophobic so was a bit nervous but it was actually fine - there was a bit of crawling through narrow spaces but you could always see the "light at the end if the tunnel"!
After this we visited the Exhibition Centre which was very educational but also lots of fun. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable day out with knowledgeable and helpful guide.
