This is a great way to while away a couple of hours and it's free, though they do ask for a minimum donation of £3 on entry. It's well worth £3 and more so I hope most people pay for the privilege of going into this great museum. There were lots of foreign visitors on the Saturday we visited and lots of kids as well as people of all ages so the appeal is great. I feel I must mention the dining car... we arrived early and hoped to get breakfast before looking around but when we got to the hot food counter we saw that the bacon looked anaemic and the sausages under cooked which really put us off. I asked at the next counter could they warn the croissants and was told no as they had no equipment on this counter. So I ended up with just a coffee and the other half had a biscuit, not the nice hot breakfast we were expecting. However we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will eat before if we ever go again. Must just mention the library section which has lots of stuff for adults and children to browse, you can search online and there is a quiet area for learning, also lockers to save you carrying all your stuff around while you're looking at the exhibits.
