Great place for family. The facilities has been very well maintained for many years as we aware and the staff are very friendly. The illusion room is interesting to explore especially for kids.

Great experience 👍 loved it both times I went there but surely not for people who get disoriented easily. Lots of stuff for kids to do as well and adults to enjoy. Prices have been relatively the same over the years so still an affordable day out when visiting this part of the country. Exhibits are mind bending!
