  What visitors thought
  Fantastic! Had such a great laugh.
Jane Norman, Fife

The whole attraction was fun and fascinating. Really well thought out and engaging exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the magic room as there was so much to do. I could have spent hours in there.
Visitor Survey

If I had to sum up the exhibitions I would say it is perhaps the best and most enjoyable fun filled experience in Edinburgh and definitely something for all the family - everyone is going to love this!
