The park was the biggest highlight for the kids though which seemed very big and suitable for kids of all ages. We were lucky with the weather... More

This museum has a small, well thought out and chosen, amount of items from pretty much every era of human existence. Well worth a visit. Decent café and grounds around as well - including Highland cattle which are always interesting to see up close.

Jump a bus, and a pleasant walk up to the museum, you will find a very beautiful museum, very spacious and easy to get around. Very large variety of artifacts to view, and plenty of space for kids to run around!
