The displays here are really interesting and interactive. Lots of things in the "relatively modern era" that you will remember fondly to add to enjoyment. I visited King Tut which was great, many of the travelling exhibitions they secure are really well worth while. For King Tut best to get the audio tour.

Stunning building in its own right. Well laid out and spacious. Carefully designed displays which are appealing and educational. I had a wonderful time at this museum.

A great family day out that can be done quite cheaply. So much to see and do for any age. There is usually a special event available that is part of the entry cost and you can take your own picnic if you don't want to buy lunch at the different cafes. IMAX is also there for something different!

Tutankamen exihibition is a must see!!!! Awesome. Didn't like how many people they let through at one time though, was too crowded and would loved to have spent more time looking at the exihibition.
