Not the largest of places and when busy it’s difficult to navigate but for the cost it is worth a visit to kill an hour when the weather isn’t great. Some interesting exhibits.

I would agree with answer above. There is a staircase to entrance. Might also be tricky to move a large pram around. I would contact them pre visit.

We paid £3.75 per adult. Not sure on opening times but I think it was something like 10-4/5 in Winter.
