5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

i visited the museum with a 5 year old and a nine year old, a little concerned they might be bored......no way !!!! after three hours i had to practically drag them out !!! there is so much to see, it's almost too much for one visit. they both said they'd love to go again, a great reference in itself . the staff are lovely and the children were made most welcome. one tiny drawback....take snacks as the cafe menu is not really child friendly and pricey. there are lots of play areas outside to have a picnic so that's what we'll be doing when we visit again. a fun day out for the price of a train fare, can't beat that !!

“A surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Recently went to our museum and I have not been for many years. The displays are great and there is so much to see. My cousin from overseas enjoyed the museuma lot. Pity the old gaol was closed for renovations.

“Crap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

To be honest it's pretty crap. Basic museum, nothing special. not much to say about it except its FREE! One of the good things haha. Interesting to tourists maybe but doe snot compare to any other museum in the world.

“Pretty good, not comparable to others though”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

The museum is an interesting place to visit and browse. Its got nothing on museums around the world. Really quite average if your a regular museum visitor. But interesting nonetheless
