Very interesting exhibition centre. Wonderful exhibit about the thoughts of soldiers in Afghanistan. Some of the museum was closed whilst improvements are being made this included the cafeteria.

What can you say about this place it is a gem!! so many interesting artifacts to browse over. The little cafe is not bad either, ideal for a lite bite. The views over Bournemouth bay are great, just sit and enjoy.

went for look around for distraction and enjoyed beautiful pictures and learning about the family and their travels; it was advertised as free but a donation is mentioned when you enter and when I mentioned I had no money on me the lady had a snooty air

An excellent gallery and museum in the most extraordinary and interesting building. Very pleasant staff only too happy to help with my particular enquiry. I look forward to visiting again when the cafe reopens.

We were recommended to the museum by people staying in our hotel and it was well worth a visit. the children were entertained with their quiz sheets and the adults were able to enjoy the art and exhibit pieces. Whilst thinking this would keep us away from the very chilly wind on Bournemouth sea front we are recommending this as a must see place whilst in Bournemouth. Thank you to the staff for being so helpful.
