Family friendly, interactive museum with lots of things to see. Plenty to keep children amused and very nice cafe with delicious cakes. Staff very helpful and friendly. Gardens would have been nice to explore if weather had been drier.

We enjoyed our visit to this lovely museum this afternoon. There were lots of fun and interesting hands on activities for our boys aged 5, 7 and 10 years. Friendly staff, scrumptious cake and board games in cafe, and wooded hill to explore.
