Not sure how much I would call that a museum. I think this a good kids cafe / play world. Lots of toy world setups: supermarket, construction site, wooden railways, etc... Your toddler will be busy for the whole stay. Unfortunately the time there is...More

It's advisable to book in advance during school breaks because only a set number can go in per two hour session. Bit of a swizz charging adults €8 each though; the same as the kids. However I would have loved a place like this as...More

This was recommended to us by friends who recently visited so we went on the bank holiday weekend in August. Pre-booking is essential as they only allow a certain amount of people in for each time slot. We phoned up and booked over the phone...More

On 3 levels, with clean "family toilets" and a little cafe. Very nice personnel. Our children liked best : the car, the supermarket, the ship (climbing on the 3 levels). I guess the water experiments are good too, but it not take place when we...More
