  • Good visit with 2 young children. Just enough to do but could perhaps benefit from the addition of a few more play replicas (similar to the fire engine) for under 5s. The RAF museum does this well...

  • Great for a wander-through, especially for kids. Lots of displays of mechanical items (cars, boats, trains and the like), right by the water. The tall ship was closed when we got there, so couldn't...

  • It was an automatically delightful experience! We had been there with family and all of us enjoyed our time there. It was great to see and read about the history of automobiles ranging from the bicycle to the car and even public transportation. You need 2-3 hours to walk through the whole museum. Kids will surely like it. A great way to spend your weekend!
  • This is a very comprehensive museum of modern science of transport, with quite a few interactive displays where kids can enjoy themselves all around. Displays are very detailed and showing amazing replicas (in many cases originals) of objects from the past. As a bonus, entry is free which does make a difference for bigger families. Easily couple of hours of well spent family time. Totally recommended.
