  • Absolutely excellent museum. Came on the bank Holiday to see the Hockney exhibition. It has been spaced out throughout the museum so you get to see more. Really great exhibits on offer and extremely well presented. Free entry, very nice gift shop. Toilets in basement.
  • Loved this museum. From medieval armors and weapons to ancient Roman Empire or even Egypt. The collection is superb and worths your time to pay it a visit. When you want to take a break there is a coffee/tea shop near the souvenirs. I really enjoyed my time here and definitely I'll return as I didn't had enough time to explore it properly.
