Greeted by friendly staff and given a free Audio Guide.
The museum is laid out beautifully and has great commentary on the guides, and more info on the walls if you wanted them.
The museum is a lot larger than you think - allow 1.5 -2 hours for a proper look around.
There are many different sections of the museum and the commentary is fantastic, easy to understand and informative.
It may be a little more expensive at £7, but well worth it.
The dress of the year exhibition is amazing to look at!
It is also quite child friendly. I saw a couple of kids doing a trail type thing, and there is also a great dress up area. The kids are able to look at how fashion has changed over the years and how ridiculous some of the clothes that people used to wear were!
I also attended a free, 20 minute tour. Great guide, knew her stuff - not only about the things she chose to talk to us about, but answered other questions about fashion with confidence and knowledge.
