Excellent and informative. Really good interactive sections that kids will love (mine are 9 and 11). A lot of really interesting exhibits and well laid out. If you’re in the area I would definitely recommend dropping in.

It has a very nice presentation of Hinkler's life and how he became famous. It has interaction games and movies where people can be entertained at the same time learn. It's all beautiful.
