The current exhibition, teaching children about Typography and the history of print is surprisingly interactive and fun. The interactive Computer display is great and the kids love being able to print out their creations. Will be back many times!

Great little museum! The main part is really for kids 5 and over. They have several craft areas set up but just for the over 5 set. My son is too young but the crafts seemed to be really good. They were very well presented...More
