  • Huge museum with several different exhibition rooms starting with first settlements, bronze age, medieval and Victorian times until today. Several revolution against the British lead through it like a red thread. In the basement, there is a medieval town which you can walk through and learn about life back then. This is nicely done for children. There is also a special exhibition which is changing regularly. A mini cinema shows a film that belongs to the special exhibition. The one I saw was produced by school children and very well done.
  • Great value for money. My children loved it. To see what they have been taught in school. There in front of them. There is a nice discovery trail.
