Small place but lots to do with bus, tram and train journey in the entrance price. Was there about 11/2 hours and didn't check the time once as too busy looking at everything and talking to men working on the buses.

On level ground it would be OK. To travel on the Buses and Trams would be difficult if you are not very good at getting around. The staff may be of help. (High steps on vehicles)
