Really enjoyed our morning in the museum and it was lovely to see so many families with you children enjoying this place. The coffee shop cafe is also worth a visit and a nice end to the day.

We collected our free tickets for the show from the reception on the ground floor for later that day. The show was an interesting commentary showing star formations on the domed celing on the 5th floor taking abourt 10 minutes.

It is both inside and out, the street is cobbled but with good pavement access. The lifts inside are the swooshy new sort with open plan shafts.
