The museum with the audio guides was a memorable outing. They guided us through the whole exhibition with lots of extra information. A must see place!

Great modern museum. Very reasonable ticket prices. Our kids 13 and 16 got a bit bored, but a very informative museum and very well made exhibitions.

As travelingjohn123 says, but I would advise buying your tickets on line beforehand to make sure you can get into the museum, they only have a few for sale, on a turn up on the day basis.overall this is a must visit
