It was nice to see and hear about history that I would never have heard if I didn't go with my daycare even though the bus over heated and yeah but just don't go in mid summer as it is extremely hot

The museum has things that could be of interest to any age group. We loved the garden and particularly enjoyed the ducks under the historic red gum.

Very well laid out, interactive and interesting way of displaying things to peak your interest. A few flights of stairs to navigate up and also down into the cellar.
