We travelled some distance to visit this Museum and were not disappointed. We went primarily for the Moore and Rodin Exhibition which was excellent with statues both inside and out which were well displayed. We also enjoyed the other small exhibitions. Grounds and building were lovely and we enjoyed a nice lunch in the restaurant. A lovely day out.

I've a season ticket for Compton Verney as I only live down the road. As always it never fails to please and is a must go for those with children. On this visit we ate at the restsurant and my goodness the service was abysmal. The food was of a reasonable standard but don't ever sit out in the garden... More

What a wonderful day we had here. Fun in the woodland play area at opening time, was followed by a gentle wander up to the mansion via the newly restored ice house. The views from the approach, of buildings, sculptures and water, makes the distance to the entrance seem shorter. We had a delightful welcome at the door, with ideas... More

We visited with the main aim to see the Moore/Rodin exhibition, and we were not disappointed. The chance to see all of these sculptures and drawings in one place is not to be missed! The museum staff and volunteers were very approachable, and gave an insight into something if we wanted it. The big sculptures were very well placed in... More

A perfect day, the sun was out and the sculptures in the grounds were magnificent, especially the Burghers of Calais. Friendly staff, great facilities, wonderful art. If we lived nearer we would take out an annual membership. Go before the latest exhibition comes to an end.

We visit regularly and have an annual membership, which makes for extremely good value. The art collections are fascinating but I particularly love the expansive grounds and walking around the lake, lots to keep the little ones busy and get their imaginations going. The playpark is just fantastic, as is the family craft area upstairs in the main house.

Superb setting and excellent exhibition. We saw Moore/Rodin and found it very educational.We thought it was expensive to get in but on reflection it was actually very good value.

Good day out a little pricey cost £30 for two to see the collections outside and a guided tour of the inside collections would chose a nice day to go as the ground are nice for a stroll.
