“Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Depressing that nothing much has changed over the past few hundred years - the rich still rip off the poor, despite the vote!

Excellent museum, great staff too.

“Worth a couple of hours.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Really enjoyed this museum. In particular the exhibits about the trade unions and the workers movement. There are also good interactive exhibits and is great for kids, who can get involved with activities and learn in a fun way.

Free entry is also a plus.
