This is a very interesting Museum and is sectioned into mini exhibitions. We found it easy to spend a couple of hours here. The cafe serves lite bites.

I've reviewed this before and I can advise the high standard has been maintained. The attached Cafe also maintains its high standard of both coffee and food.
