The woman on duty was exceptionally helpful, absolutely made my day. Loads of information and good displays, definitely remember to go up to the 2nd floor and check out the Land and Light Collection - the Ted Harrison Collection was a highlight for me.

There are a variety of exhibits, and it is amazing to hear the guide recite "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by heart. The most absorbing exhibit for me was that on the building of the Alcan, which is downstairs.
