Given I love history and being of pacific island descent I thoroughly enjoyed this. Tours were well versed and the halls had levels of knowledge and artefacts that were quite fascinating. The Kings Room also had an air of the Kings being in the room with you. Great for kids too as the science center very educational but enjoyable.
