It is the second time we go to this museum over the past 10 years so are not well informed. The London exibition is all about fashion, art, music, very little about history which is my favorite topic. Therefore, I was disappointed but I should...More

An interesting museum with a different approach to some of the exhibits (such as 400 objects from different points in time). The indigenous peoples' exhibit was well worth seeing.

Spend a few hours in this museum. It has changing exhibitions, so this review may be out-of-date quite soon. We visited an exhibition on the 1st Nations. As a European it's a part of North American history I only have a superficial knowledge of. Also...More
