I took my 16 year old son here as we wanted a day trip in London and to visit something a little different - all on a budget.
I'm really pleased to say that the ticket prices are very affordable, I pre-booked online the evening before and printed the e-ticket. But for what we paid we definitely got lots for our money.
We both love music and overall the exhibition had interesting information about the history of modern music, with lots of memorabilia and items donated by musicians, etc which was very impressive.
The interactive technology was a good idea and mostly working. Although it did take me a while to work out how to wave my hand over some exhibits - less waving and more touch as you move up and down the interactive keyboard, so maybe the instructions could be a little clearer.
Although it was busy (we went on a morning at the same time as 2 school trips), the way it's laid out and the size of the rooms meant we didn't struggle to find a free exhibit to view.
The interactive studio was a little busier and my son was keen to get on the drums but didn't manage to as one set was out of action and the other two were taken up with school children. However we managed to have a go on the guitars - although I did have to tune them...! I managed to record my play along to the Magic Numbers.
The smarticket is a brilliant idea (and part of the ticket price :)) the dance moves I recorded in the dance studio will definitely NOT be going onto Facebook, but a fun reminder of the day. I don't think the ticket has recorded any of the information I wanted it to save, firstly because I probably didn't fully understand how to use it at first, however once I'd got the hang of it, there are still things not recorded.
We spent 2 hours there and overall I was quite impressed, thanks.
