Sorry to have missed this review Yvette, especially as you're so kind about the museum and value for money. Thank you for taking the time to post something here. We do read every one but somehow, with Christmas, this one slipped under the net!

lovely friendly staff; what differentiates from other museums are the great hands-on experiences where you are allowed to use old equipment; also great are the many events and activities, e.g. amazing Viking displays etc

If they have an interest in history then it would. All the displays are interactive, and I think the telephone room would be a favourite.

Yes, but as other people have said, some spaces would be a bit tight for a large buggy. Maybe a baby carrier would be easier if you have one? They have changing facilities so you should be well catered for :)
