Brilliant! Love it! Kids never get bored of it. Travel through time...for FREE! A real Viking long boat & artifacts from thousands of years ago. Roman villa with real mosaics. Everywhere you turn there's something to see.

Doesn't look much from the outside, but once you are in there is just goes on and on, via a huge woolly Mammoth through a timeline of history related to East Yorks. Very well presented and suitable for all ages, and free!
