Took our 2 grandkids age 7 and 4. The 7yr old was learning about Vikings at school and absolutely loved the whole experience, even the nasty smells. Thd 4yr old found it a bit too scary and spent the whole jouney through with her face buried into Grandma! She did enjoy looking at things on the interactive screens but they were a little high for her and there were no steps.
The staff were brilliant especially the viking showing pieces of 1000yr antler and bone ice skate.

Had never been to this before and to be honest I'd assumed it wouldn't be up to much. But from the first moments hunting for viking items on the floor, to the village ride and artefacts, it's a good bit of fun. Educationally balanced to provide good content across the age spectrum.
