This is a great place for a Sunday afternoon after a long walk around the city. Young and old alike can find an interest. History through the decades going back 11000 years.

The ticket was really not expensive and the shop had some excellent coffee beans (sweets) for which I came back several times! I liked the museum, it had some very interesting sections.

Stopped in while in downtown specifically to see the Viking Exhibit and it was very interesting, lots of reading and I learned many new things I didn't know about before. Not sure this is for young children as tough to hold their interest.
