“Good Museum and Art GAllery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Lots to see here, the children will love it. A good museum with a Egyptology section, an interesting art gallery and even an aquarium all under one roof. Lots for children to do during school holidays.

What a fantastic facility for families with children of all ages and amazing events and activities throughout all of the school holidays with most of them free or a small nominal charge.
