You need to book to get in. When we came in the morning the first slot available was 4pm. Slots for the following day were also full and foreigners can't book on line. So be prepared for disappointed kids

Came here with our two year old who had a blast. Free to visit. Changing rooms but no cafe although very limited selection of things next door in main folk museum. Would definitely go back as toddler had such a fab time.
