Absolutely gorgeous. Interesting, fun, great service, lots of things to learn about, kids and adults can touch and play, bring your own food (madpakke) and stay for a couple of hours. Really nice. Thank you.

Worth the price of admission! (Free entrance) but absolutely must visit with kids. Lots of English in the signs and explanations as well. We got stuck on a rainy morning and found this. Turned it into a bright day!
