All staff were friendly, approachable and helpful

Anything else you wish to tell us?

Would definitely recommend for a day out, only thing would suggest, would be some seating spaced throughout the venue to allow those with restricted mobility to rest Liked the fold away stools so much in the museum, that I want to purchase one,they're not too low or too high, perfect for those with bad hips or knees .
