Well worth a visit! The tour is great as it has a good mix for every age group. It is both informative and enjoyable. The kids loved being able to be "hands on" trying on uniforms, using microscopes and especially having their finger prints taken....More

Nicely done out and reasonably priced coffee shop BUT unless things have changed since my visit the staff were useless (not in the coffee shop but elsewhere within) and some down right rude. Have not been back and won't be going.
