We went here after Madame Tussaud's, again i think it is expensive to walk round an exhibition. Some interesting facts but not really dissimilar to Blackpool ripley's. It killed 40mins for us. Not very busy either which was good.

The black hole gets me every time, my wife did it with ease, my kids too. the Laser Race is pretty neat fun experience. Dinosaurs stuff is you'll enjoy. The front of the building looks like a Ripley's on Boardway.
