  • The Museum is a place for everyone and recommended to enjoy its teaching rooms, you can spend an entire afternoon learning about the place.

  • This is a cool place to take young children. Plenty of things to play/learn! They do fireworks at the end of the year. They are some of the best in the country. There are a lot of events held here year round so go to their website to see what is coming up.
  • Amazing place. We went with our 4 year old, he loved it. We were there only half a day and we saw about half of the museum. Great place !
