Always something new to see, feel, touch or hear here. Lots to keep anyone of any age entertained. Only problem is children never want to leave. Tickets seem expensive but are worth it for how much there is.

Had a lovely time in here. Much to see. Advanced booking would be needed I think. Many school kids here so watch out for your timing of arrival

I only went up the tower, not into the main museum. It was good value, interesting engineering, friendly guides, and amazing views from the top on what was a sunny clear day.
