Thanks for taking the time to leave sucha lovely review! See you again soon :-)
I have visited the civic myself a few times but have recently brought my class year 6 children to view the exhibits. What an amazing experience they had. Jason, the curator, engaged with the children, explaining the exhibits and made the experience so memorable.
