“Great exhibitions for the whole family”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Very interesting exhibitions about the history of the city. They didn't have a cloak room which made things less enjoyable as i had a heavy rucksack to lug around.

“Some interesting stuff and activities for children.”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

You can spend a good couple of hours in here with little ones. Some very good displays on ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and a fun interactive carnival area. On weekends they run activities for infants.
