The Victorian street was the most interesting part because it was interactive and informative. The museum was also very good and it explained the medical advances of British history very well. I would definitely recommend.

Great if you have kids, they will really like, lots of things to touch, pull and look at that will keeps children entertained for a couple of hours of the day. The cafè is great as well not many things in terms of options but what they have is great.

However if you plan to come to this museum by yourself or with two adults, unless they are extremely into history i believe it isnt worth the £8 entry fee although you get free entry for a year afterwards, you wouldnt want to come back for a second time as you can do the whole museum in about 45mins.

The museum is very informative and gives a good indication of how medicine has advanced over the years. There is sufficient parking, including disabled, and allow about 2-3 hours to see everything.
