I hate leaving a negative review of such a niche museum, but it could be so much more. It represents a man who was so clever and amusing and yet the museum really lacks creativity. I understand that two items were out of use due to covid, but even so. I tend to spend many hours in museums but try as I might this was finished in under an hour. I just feel it doesn't pay sufficient testament to Heath Robinson

I have been fascinated, since childhood, by the illustrations and cartoons of William Heath Robinson, especially his over elaborate machines for doing the simplest of tasks. The term "Heath Robinson" is still in my vocabulary to describe something randomly put together. So to discover that there was a museum dedicated to William Heath Robinson was quite exciting! This wonderful museum is only small, with three gallery rooms and a shop. Two of the rooms are dedicated to the work and illustrations of Heath Robinson and the third, when we visited, had a special temporary exhibition on another London 20th century illustrator, Charles Keeping. This is a modern little museum set in set in a park with cafe, lake and children's play area. The exhibits were well presented in the galleries with plenty of useful and informative display notes. I learnt a lot from my visit. For instance, I had not realised that Heath Robinson did many other types of illustration besides his cartoons, I learnt that he illustrated the "Water Babies", a book I had in childhood. Also his World War 1 propaganda cartoons were poignant. The staff were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. This museum is well worth a visit (one hour is all that is needed).

Very pleasant museum with something for everyone, whether you are familiar with W. Heath Robinson or new to his work. Set in the green of Pinner Memorial Park, well worth a visit.

Lovely small exhibition space set in parkland. I have known Charles Keeping and his family for many years and this exhibition brought back happy memories for me. This is a series of pictures that will be enjoyed by all age groups, wonderful illustrations, sometimes dark, sometimes joyful, but all quite amazing! and I urge you to visit.
