My 7 year old loved it here. It's a very interactive place. We loved the quill writing and didn't realise it was so difficult! It takes about an hour to go round but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We found the Tudor House by chance and were very pleasently surpriesed. We wonder why it's not better known. Maybe the marketing for the Shakespeare's houses are over-powering the rest of Stratford's gems.

This was a bit of fun, We went along to this Tudor building and saw how the people of the Tudor lived. Smells, clothes. events, all explained. Lots of hands on exhibits to see and experience. Not too expensive a fun way of teaching history.

Interesting, lots of informative displays, need to take time to look and read all the details, and you get a good insight into life at this time. Don`t expect high tech displays but you can expect to leave having learnt some interesting facts.
