  • Hidden gem in Woodstock. Went this morning with our small family (two toddlers) and it was great. Spent most of the time in the interactive Dino room, with dress up and lots of puzzles, books and other things to do. The temporary Alice in Wonderland exposition (until Sep 2019) is a real treat too! Spent almost two ours here without actually seeing much of the historic expos.
  • Quite small but interesting facts & clothes including Queen Victoria's life. Clean toilets & very nice coffee shop sit in or outside in the very pretty garden.
