Very interesting but the recreation of Leeds is disgusting....The smell is horrendous and I had to run through it because I was feeling sick. Sort that and it would be perfect.

It was nice. Loved the way they resembled the old life in London with the smell of it and the spread of diseases. First time for me to see that. Go and enjoy it.

Lots of things to keep the kids interested. Great value for money at less than £25 for 4 hours. Some exhibits probably aren't suitable for younger kids.
