Worth a 30 minute visit. Well laid out and very informative. Each display is clearly labelled and the free guide is full of information. Plenty of hands on stuff for kids and very helpful staff.

A great place to visit for an hour or two. Our boys built a fort, dressed up in Roman toga and played noughts and Crosses with stones. There is an educational video to watch and various displays to look at.
