Excellent museum. Staff are lovely, place is great to visit, loved boat ride. Just there are nowhere near enough toilets? There are 2 disabled/child toilets and only 1 gents 1 ladies, surely there should be more?

The "ride" is very smooth and slow. Nothing jumps out and scares you so it is suitable for all ages, The only potential problem may be if you wanted to get off, there isn't really anywhere you could stop until you were at... More

Ordering online is a waste of time and money as we paid extra for fast track but the general admission queue went in as quickly.
