  • 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.
