ok, so here are the pictures of the actual museum! yay!
there is a really cool cafe to the right (i had a fantastic "jacket potato")
inside shots are a bit fuzzy, phone and camera are crappy in poor light and it was raining that day... several museum type rooms with fun and creative stations for the kids
i think liz and emily were the perfect age for this museum
this was the shadow puppet theatre and there were stations to stamp a book you got at the beginning of the tour
characters from the movie fantastic mr. fox (and chris, clowning around)
while the girls colored in this fun coloring room, i walked around to see what other kids had done. there were lots of stations designed to help with story telling and story writing. i thought the combinations were neat (and some naughty, just like roald dahl)
the mother of all coloring rooms, unlimited supplies
there were school children there (dressed in suit and tie, both boys and girls) so we could not hear the story telling session (bummer) but we had fun watching them play. the girls were too intrigued to notice
view to the courtyard, so nice and clean
surprisingly not much about chocolate, but still a very nice collection of his work. the gift shop was to die for (still pining for a book i didnt buy) and lunch at the cafe "twit"and then a walk through town to the cemetery made a perfect day trip.
hope you enjoyed the tour!!
