My children are now teenagers now but I used to take both of them regularly to visit here. The displays had not changed since the 1970's when I visited as a child. My son and I visited yesterday and I got a very pleasant surprise when all the displays had been updated to a very high standard with inter-active displays and a new prison life display downstairs with a mock prison cell and a good information film to explain the history.This would appeal to children as well because of the graphics that they would expect from their computer games. Only criticism I have always had is that there is just as much art as there is museum pieces.Personally I would like to see more museum pieces that must spend their time hidden up because of the art on display.Their cafe has been updated as well but didnt get time to visit on this occasion
