  • A really fun little gem of a museum. They have an amazing collection of historic animatronics that I imagine would have been very magical in their day. It was delightful. They also had a funny, multi-lingual magician who wowed my boys are ensured there was full audience participation and attention. We laughed and were amazed with his tricks. The older man who seemed to run the place didn't speak english, but still went out of his way to interact with the children and delight them will paper helicopters. Very much recommended activity if you have children!
  • Amazing place❣A great experience for my 8 years old son but for me too.Dont miss it!
