My daughter, grand-children (boys of 3 and 7) and myself from the UK all enjoyed this museums. There was plenty of interaction, and made history very accessible for the children. Sadly I remembered some of the exhibits.

Our daughter had gone previously for a school outing and encouraged us to go as a family. Very enjoyable and educational. Helpful people around and we even had a young man give us a guided tour.
