This is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. It is different at different times throughout the year. The exhibitions are great. The shop too! I love the quality of plants that they were selling. Their website is also really helpful.

Lovely place to take the kids. Besides there being a brilliant little play area for them, and a good restaurant for food and drinks, there is also the Museam which houses lots of old cars, horse carts and lots more . Lots of history revolving around Luton, great place for kids to understand what things were like way back before... More

Can't believe this place is free. I spent over 4 hours here with my Husband and 2 young boys. Plenty to see in the Museum and Galleries, get a quiz booklet from the shop to keep the kids interested. We enjoyed a drink outside in the café, where you can relax and watch the children in the play area. The... More
