2nd time here and still interesting. There are a lot of exhibits that will reward spending a bit of time at. Some of the displays were even updated for Covid. more »
I wish I had left a bit more time to visit here! All of the exhibits are really beautifully put together so it's a pleasure to spend a couple of hours wandering through. The love exhibit was awesome, I found it really moving and cried about four times. The mix of audio and visual was great and there's something about wearing headphones that makes you feel like you're the only person in the room.
Spent close to two hours in the Love exhibit. It is amazing! So well done and touching, and showcases a wide variety of people and relationships. I rarely participate in audio tours, but I really enjoyed this one, both for the music and the spoken stories.
