I took our 4 year old granddaughter here when she came to stay and ended up spending nearly 3 hours here she was as so amazed by everything. It was school holidays so also had a great storyteller there

A real 'wonderland'. Take the kids or go on your own as adults can wonder at the work that has gone into creating the displays. Very clever work from a very committed community.
