Jorvik Viking Centre (York) - Interesting displays with a lot of interactive possibilities. the Journey of Yorvik streets is short and could be slower.

Kinneil Estate Park (Bo'ness) - Plenty to see and do at Kinneil and surrounding area, particularly during the House open days House often only viewable externally, though museum generally open
Carnglaze Caverns (Cornwall) - lovely setting, fascinating caverns, helpful informed staff small-scale operation (not necessarily a disadvantage!)
