How sad is it whe childhood memories don't meet adult reality. $15 admin to see a very tired collection of dolls. Save your money and by pass

My 6 year old enjoyed himself but it was expensive for what it was. My husband and I weren’t very impressed.

This attraction should be free to enter or a maximum of $5 an adult as it is in poor condition and smells very mouldy. There was also a distinct smelt of urine in the great hall. You could walk through the whole castle quite easily...More
