Great for kids and adults

This was a good place to fill in time while waiting to go to the airport to catch our plane. Our children didn't want to leave.

Reasonably priced fun activity within the museum. Busy due to school groups, so be mindful when attending, had to wait for some activities. Interactive and interesting, good fun, but quite small, previously went to science works in Melbourne which is huge so maybe expected too much.

Descriptions are concise and provide an encyclopedia of knowledge. Children present were entranced. This museum is always providing exciting exhibitions, as well as permanent features, full marks to whoever is responsible, Another room has insects that cause disease, also very edifying.... More

There were a few of the exhibits which I found a little mundane. The staff were very friendly which you do remember. I have been to many museums were the staff are not friendly at... More
