  But where do you sit?

If you've an interest in exploration of a polar kind, then this is the place for you.
Many exhibits, most of which I found interesting and, the daddy of them all is the whale. A seriously huge skeleton of a blue whale suspended from the ceiling is an item you are unlikely to forget.
Personally I also found the vehicles that they have taken down there fascinating. This one shown here was the first ever, though not too successful, but what a design!
It was even beyond the intelligence of my son!
