Interesting but nothing much. Travelled specially to this place and museum was also occupied by kids in maybe primary school. Good place t visit if you have time but otherwise not necessary.

Lots of fun and very cheap for the quality. A great place to spend time with your family of you have an afternoon that your want to spend inside. Highly recommend the "ride" on the 4th floor and the VR games.
