Going next weekend with DS1 and 2 who are 15 and 13 and studying it in history for GCSE. We're in a quandary about DS3 who is 10. The museum suggests it is not suitable for under 14s. Don't have an issue with DS2 - he is very young in his year but at the top academically (don't want to sound showy offy but it's true!). Just wondering nether DS3 would manage with the exhibition? He is also very bright and interested in politics and stuff but we're just not sure whether we're pushing him into something just for our convenience.
Any experience of taking younger children to this exhibition?

too young, it is a very intense exhibit.

Thanks for that - is that because of the information or the way it is laid out or what?

Too young. There are lots of age appropriate things to do in the museum.

I went with similar aged children: agree it isn't suitable for the youngest and I would offer the choice to the teens ... there is loads to see at the museum without that particular exhibition so they won't miss out...
