I liked the way that this museum was laid out. There are several interactive parts to keep everyone entertained. Its pretty cool how the audio guide is hooked up based on where you are in the building.

We were very impressed by this museum. It was very approachable - a good size (we spent an hour but could have done a bit more). The exhibits were put together thoughtfully and we learned a lot. interactive and nice gift shop.

We lost track of time here, immersed in the exhibits. You get a free audioguide with the entry. We loved the games you could play and also the exhibits of things prisoners of war made.
