We booked tickets to both the show and exhibition. The quality of the show was outstanding and kept everyone entertained for the hour. I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of the show itself. Exhibition afterwards was good too.

Lovely place to visit especially for children and those young at heart. Very steep entrance so watch out! Once inside it pretty much accessible for all.
