Returned here after originally visiting 6 years ago, and was a little disappointed. Massive shame really as this museum portrays an extremely important message, and the staff were really friendly too. There’s a lot of information here, and you do get your money’s worth for...More

This is an extremely interesting museum which, to me, demands a lengthy period of time to read and absorb all that there is to see. My friends weren't museum people so I had to rush my visit but I would like to return on my...More
