A very child-friendly museum being modern and interactive. If you are not a big fan of trains and/or technology, I think you can skip it. Easily accessible by underground.

We enjoyed visiting the Greatest Railway Diorama room the best, where a room-sized fully-functioning diorama is housed. The diorama...More
