It was fun but mainly for children, you are only allowed in the gimmicky room with giant furniture for 10 mins then you are whisked away on a CBBC like journey of mainly story telling.

We went here on a complete whim and really enjoyed it. It’s not a museum for children as there is a lot of sitting and listening involved, but it’s very fun for adults. Must see!
