“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I went to see the current exhibition on doctors dissection and anatomy. I listened to a per booked talk first which was interesting and informative however the room was not set out to the best and hearing was hard from the ack.

The exhibition itself is crammed full of I the resting artefacts and gives a good insight into londons past body snatching and dissection.

“School visit heaven”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The upsides - there's parking very close by, it's free (£5 suggested donation) tea-room serves nice stuff. Downsides, it's all just a bit tired - I felt as if I'd was back in 1983! Still, there were plenty of schools visiting when I visited and all the kids seemd to be having a whale of a time - so there's the market. For me, it was average, but worth visiting although if you are on a tight tourist schedule you may find other places that are more worthwhile.

“excellent day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

a great visit - travel through time and see all sorts of reconstructions and artefacts. we enjoyed all of it and its hard to single out the best but the videos of the Black death and the Great Fire of London and the Queens coronation coach plus the victorian streets were really good.
