“Kept the children amused and interested”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

What a lovely little museum, we went to the park to see the hockey but got there really early and dived in here to pass the time.

The kids liked that they could touch things and the adults liked the good explanations on all the exhibits. A bit on the topology, history of the area and how it developed a lot on social history with real life items to view.

“Great place”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Totally agree with all the other positive reviews here. Stratford Park is great for a walk even on a windswept February day, and the museum is a gem: really interesting permanent collection, plus modern temporary exhibition spaces. Staff are friendly and helpful. And it's all free. Will be interesting to see how work on the hidden walled garden progresses over the coming months and years.
