    I normally have to drag my kids around museums and exhibitions but they really enjoyed this one. We did the guided tour (in English) and it was really informative. They have tour guides dressed as historic figures – we were shown around the place by the young prince’s wetnurse! There are two story telling rooms – one for younger children (which we went to) where the story is told by the palace mice and other creatures. My kids loved this. Great and enjoyable way for your kids to learn the history of the city. (Beth Lovett)
