(Review in Dutch)

Het was een grote teleurstelling voor mijn kleinzoon van 12 jaar.geen plattegrond,niemand bij het forensisch onderzoek,1 donkere kamer waren met het licht bezig,geen tank buiten, geen winkel voor souvenir.wij waren de enige bezoekers het eerste half uur, daarna nog 5 mensen.mijn kleinzoon wil al vanaf zijn 6 jaar bij de marechaussee, al 2 keer een presentatie op school gegeven.Het was een hele reis met het openbaar vervoer, oma wilde hem zo graag verrassen.
