This was an amazing exhibition. Well laid out and loads of interactive things for children to take part in as well as we older children. When will we ever see the Gospels again in the NOrth.

if you are interested in history - this is a place to visit. Puts things learnt at the Cathedral and a visit to Holy Island into perspective
