  • Love this place. Love seeing the old girls run up. Such a unique experience that you'll not find anywhere else. It continues to grow and shows new, additional promise all the time too. Facilities wise this place is also so peaceful, so accessible, so well set out and organised and caters so very well for everyone. I am, by my own admission, very difficult to please yet I've never left here disappointed. Thank you so much for yet another fantastic day.
  • Good for half day with children of an older age as to get the best out of it requires a level of understanding that under 10's don't have. Could do with a few more interactive exhibits for children, appreciate its a heritage center, that said a great day for adults with lots of personal exhibits putting that emotional tie to them. All exhibits well presented with lots to look at. Vehicle shed shut on our day of visit. Would have given 5 stars for visit without children, still it kept them off the phones for the visit so wasn't all bad.
