The exhibition is nice, preceded by the short film, but unfortunately when the theater disgorges its occupants, we are all trying to read the same information boards at the same time, so it's somewhat crowded. The artifacts on show are replicas, but stunning nevertheless. It's...More

No parking price and yes you can just use the nice tea rooms you pay to see exhibition, the mounds and Mrs Pretty's house but well worth it.
