“Fab”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Great art exhibitions and a lovely space. I can see why it won Museum of the Year 2012. It's definitely worth a visit.

“Eclectic collection of interesting exhibits”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This is a museum that features unexpected and unusual items on display, providing interesting surprises. An elephant, a giraffe and a harpsichord in one display left me somewhat puzzled, however this simply adds to the overall fascination of the place.

“A museum to keep you interested”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

This is an excellent museum. The displays are well done, for example the geological video with time line. There were far more exhibits than I expected and from across the world. The pacific exhibitions were particularly interesting.
