  • Amazing museum. So much to see and do. Phase 3 interactive section is so much fun. Interesting to note that all the old technology, would now fit on a USB thumb drive. Run by volunteers, this place is a “ must see” on your travels
  • Only had 1hr to see everything, I soon discovered you will easily need 4hrs to take it all in. Make sure you have enough time as it is well worth it. Keep up the good work volunteers that keep the place running!
