The interior of the building is stunning so it's worth going for that alone. The exhibits are like miniature versions of the British Museum and National Gallery rolled into one.

Fantastic works of art from various periods and countries, well set out and free so you don't have to try to see everything in one day - too much to take in. Will have to visit again. Henry Moore sculptures both big and small!

Just amazing to see work over 350 years old with bright colours and intricate pattern. It was an inspiration. The rest of the exhibits were most varied and regretfully we had little time to enjoy them it will need a return visit some time.

Visited the museum in January on a wet afternoon. Museum is free to enter with lots to see including some quality paintings. The day we visited there was a small orchestra playing live music at various locations during the day.

Hi, If your child is familiar with the atmosphere and loves to be in quiet zones for a long time, there is plenty to enjoy. But I suggest to have a little break sometime and take the kid out in the garden to relax and get... More
