Within the gift shop as well as gifts there are a collection of old slot machines from many years ago. For a small cost old 1d coins are available from the gift shop to enable you to operate these machines. The gift shop is free to enter.

Some of these are quite amusing and entertaining for children and adults and to think these were the height of entertainment and technology nearly a hundred years ago!
