Don't go out of your way for it. Overall an OK if nothing else to do on a rainy day while limited only to Burnside. OK exhibits but the part time staff are not great.

I would like to give it a 4.5, but that's not an option. We've gone twice. Once with sons aged 11, 7 and 5. Second time with younger 2 sons and a few nephews. The facility is not large, so for that reason it doesn't...More
