This is a small museum by some standards and in my opinion is for those who have a deep interest in the subject. I note that some people say that it is not for children, but I took my son there from an early age and he loved it. I would say that if your chlidren need lots of interactive things to keep their interest, you may have a problem! My son was a devoted seeker of information from an early age, and still is. We donated some items to this museum some years ago and were welcomed and shown round there by the curator at that time. So if you are brushing up on your hobby it is a great place to go, if you are into interactive 'shoot em up' games, perhaps not your scene? Some of the hands on items could be fun for the younger ones too. NB. We visited this a couple of years ago, outside of the options stated on the web site.
