Beautiful building with soaring stained glass windows and a stunning public space inside. You can 'walk' through the area's history and they use lots of interactive displays. Be sure to ask why the Queen Victoria statue has no hands.

a must see - the pipe organ, the stunning stained glass windows that warrant at least an hour's visit all by themselves, the panels explaining the history of the city and the country - all well worth a visit, and it is all free!

I think as I can remember there is a throne on the 2nd floor where you can sit and there is a cape/robe you can put on. Possibly? Ask the lady at reception desk.
