It has a large number of real objects of all kinds, from prehistoric tools to pieces of railroads that led England to dominate the world during the time of the industrial revolution.
However, it also has other elements that provide more information, such as tables, interactive screens that you can use to obtain summaries and extra information, etc. If you are traveling as a family and you want to instill in your child a passion for knowledge, you can ask them to carry out some of the activities they organize for the little ones (after paying, of course).
