This museum is a fantastic day out and is really highly recommended for children up to about 11. There are specific areas for the under 5’s and even a couple of special non-walker areas. The concept of the museum is that you learn through play and everything there is hand-on. There is a cafe and gift shop on site although there are indoor and outdoor picnic benches if you want to take your own.
“All really hands on. Fab day out.”

“We took our 2.5 year old a few weeks ago. We were there from start to finish and she didn’t want to go home. Luckily you can use your tickets for a year so I’d say we will definitely be back. There’s a large sandpit outside too so take a picnic and sit out for a bit, it’s lovely”
