I have purchased a number of discounted entry tickets to different attractions over the years aand all have been 'out of season' and generally reflect the restrictions/limitations imposed by seasonal impositions e.g the gardens have little to offer or there is no major exhibition running. So the reduced entry price usually reflects that. Watch out for expiry dates.

A very pleasant experience, with a varied collection, including some important art. Sadly the silver swan is out on loan to the Science musuem. The video and projector displays showed what it's like, but made me eager to see it in reality.

Even though the mechanical swan was not there it was a very interesting place and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Plenty of other items on display and a hologram of the swan to make up for its absence.
