Visited with 2 families today, the kids absolutely loved it! Kid friendly and worth the price paying for entry. Immersive art experience, followed by interactive art room where you can see your own image in a large scale animation, and a virtual reality room. Very moving and really at the cutting edge of where art meets history meets digital meets experience. Highly recommended!
