Reviews

Great for everyone 4 out of 5 stars

This museum made a great day out. The website is very informative and has a whole section to plan your visit especially for people on the autistic spectrum. Lots to see, touch, and hear. Would be 5stars but was disappointed not to find baby changing facilities, had to use toilet floor which was wet
