Not a huge museum or exhibition but if your interests include 2000AD, Doctor Who, Star Trek, X-Men and Star Wars then there is something to see.

There were Judges on patrol along with Stromtroopers, Doctors, and galactic Princesses.
Fun trail teasure hunt card thing for kids to complete and plenty of photo ops. I met that Boba Fett chappie.

Nice the way they included the Doctor Who stuff in with their other timey wimey exhibits.

For kids.  Yes, that's it.  For kids.  Not for adults.  (Rackle and I both ended up dark side).

And we didn't get excited at seeing all the hidden lego figures or the Dalek, not to mention all the 2000AD exhibits.

I swear I spotted some jimping taking place but I'm not a grass so said nothing. Might have some photo evidence of it somewhere though
