Visited the Museum with our 14 year old grandson. I have visited there several times and it's always a very special treat. This time was the best of the best. Definitely a must do.

Truly - you can spend hours here. Plan on doing the simulator & slotcars too! Fun for the whole family. Include a stop at the cafe for a coffee/tea or meal. P.S. Bring your camera for the cars & the building.
