  • Gem of a museum, with something for everyone, and even stands for youngsters, so they can step up and see the exhibits. The displays were reassuringly detailed, without detracting from the sheer scope and range of material, but all accessible. I loved the fact that I could go round at my own speed and still gain so much from the way everything was presented, and then enjoy the beautiful cafe, an oasis of calm.
  • Beautiful museum with an extremely wide variety of pieces. Whether you like natural history, art or science, you will find it here. The Oval room is beautiful too and it makes you really feel like an academic
