Entry fee reasonabley priced for 2 adults was a bit pricey when entering as a family. Displays and information were great. it’s interesting but not for everyone as my partner loved it more then I did. It’s more of a museum for adults then children.

As a first time visitor I wasn’t sure what to expect with the place. Definitely a place to spend an hour wandering around and enjoyable but it’s not for everyone.

Kids loves the visit here, lots of interesting facts to read and loved the final few exhibitions that were more hands on. We had to stop for lunch and return they were so taken. Spent a lot longer going through than expected

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
