Unfortunately we found that the main museum is closed for renovation until 2021. The Q8 Annex is open, but costs the same as it would for the main museum even though it’s about a 10th of the size! Ok so it’s not a huge amount...More

Sadly found this is closed -- with signs to an annex (Q8) that was supposed to be open...but was also closed until the next exhibition begins. Really odd not to have this information appear on the main web page, but it is not even clearly...More
