What's more original for a museum than that? Real fun and learning experience plus great shop downstairs to get a memory stylish gift in the end!

“It's in the Bag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Loved this little gem. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to see everything. Great store with some very unique bags for sale.

“Random”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We had a few museum passes left so we decided to drop by because it was right down the street from our hotel. It wasn't nearly as fascinating as I thought it would be. The early purses were fascinating, to see the evolution of purses, on the top floor, but as you work your way down, it gets a bit tedious. Honestly we were bored and had nothing better to do. I am a purse and shoe manic and thought it would be interesting, eh not so much. However, there were some horrific bags made from animal faces, which my boyfriend made me take pictures of... Check it out, it was worth it the first 10 mins.

“A surprising and interesting find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We heard about this museum from a blog we read whilst looking for something to do on our final day and decided to check it out as it was something quite different. We honestly weren't expecting much and were pleasantly surprised at how well everything was presented and how interesting it actually was. The current temporary exhibition of fans was fascinating. All of the staff were incredibly welcoming and the cafe and tearooms looked lovely but we didn't have time to stop. I attended with my husband and even he found it interesting.
