“Excellent and evocative”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

A real treasure, fascinating story, well told. Lots to see. Having been brought up on the four Maries it was a real delight. Makes you think - even the automata on the way out is worth using. Pleasant gardens, friendly staff, free. All visitor attractions should be like this - something for lots of different people (and children)

“Wonderfull”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I have wanted to visit this house for 5 years and was not disappointed. There is a lot of information. I would advise taking the info phones. Very friendly and the gardens are nice to walk in.

“Very interesting stop!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We found this small museum after seeing a sign while driving -- so glad we did. British history is so fascinating (and a little confusing) and this museum did a great job explaining the timeline and history of the area. Incredible to walk through a place where she would have been, and to be able to touch the walls and use the same staircase, etc.

Definitely worth the quick stop -- plenty of free parking just down the street!
