Friendly staff, delicious food served by friendly people. The highlight of this visit was our caricatures drawn by the on-site artist which will be framed on our wall. A pleasant place to spend a couple of hours.

I can understand how this museum is exciting for children, as there is playing area, petting zoo and some puppet shows. However as an adult I found it only mildly interesting and very run down. Also, it seems like there was not enough staff anywhere,...More
