Had a great time following my grand daughter aged two and half round the different activities she loved pushing buttons turning wheels driving cars wobbling giant teeth sitting on a giant tongue dressing up playing shop so much for her to explore.

Been taking my grandson's here for years. Well worth a visit, lovely friendly and informative. Only criticism is you have to leave through the shop which is expensive.
