It was an eye opener to go to this museum. This is a must-go place for school kids (and adults) as there is a lot of learning that one can get. It is a good exposure for anyone seeking something different.

Well cured and maintained. It's small but has all the stuff that can keep kids interested and inquisitive. I visited with my family with 2 small kids, and they enjoyed it thoroughly.

This small museum has loads of exhibits, with new ones coming out all the time. The staff are excellent with public, answering a whole range of questions and keen to receive collections. The temporary exhibits are thought provoking and there are regular activities
