So much to see in this small Museum tucked away in the Botanical Gardens - layout a tad difficult but very interesting content - café looks very popular

This small museum is like all the musems of London rolled in to one much smaller building - modern art to old masters, fashion and jewellery, ceramics and sculture, natural history and so much more - even a mummy. Lots for the kids - highly recommend

Only popped in quickly to see this which was good, but had an enjoyable nose through the other floors on way back down. Would actually recommend starting at top floor.

Not a bad experience once you're there. However, don't try to research online first as it's virtually impossible to find their website. Also, don't try as we did to visit on a Monday in summer, expecting it to be open. It's closed and we struggled to park and gain access with a family member on crutches. Clearly an institution that... More

Several different levels with information on various subjects, such as the Ice Age, the Spanish Armada, style and the Troubles. My one big issue is that parking is a nightmare. It said on the website that there is ample parking, so I... More

Okay a few small negatives first: There is only on street parking. At 10.30am on Sunday morning we got a spot about 100metres away, just. It must be a bit of a pain parking at busier times. And I agree with some of other reviewers who pointed out that the floor layout in the museum is a bit difficult to... More
