I took my 2yr old grandaughter to the museum and she loved it. Plenty to see and do and also a great play area for little ones to let off steam. Very enjoyable afternoon spent there.

The New Walk is a lovely place to stroll along. Some beautiful buildings, trees, just beware of cyclists who should not be there.
