  • A great family museum. Something for all ages. All out of interactive exhibits. Professor Splash was so enjoyable. The complimentary audio tours for the fine arts section was greatly appreciated. I would visit again as we couldn’t cover everything in one afternoon
  • Great experience, completely accessible for English people. Friendly staff and affordable price. Simulator experience was very enjoyable, with a little competition!
