“Facinating”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Be sure to watch the video explaining the Mappa prior to entering the room where it is stored. This will ensure you will pick out the finer points and references.
The chain library is very interesting.
My only criticism is that £6 for entry is a little expensive.

Brilliant, well laid out exhibition of a world famous item.
Chain library amazing too, but do visit the one in Grantham for a comparable experience.
