Interesting how the rooms are set and the periods are identified as you move along the house and read how the life of the servants and the gentry change. A library to sit and read and a garden to walk around made this a lovely way to spend an hour.

Web site confusing. Finding entrance/Disabled parking and access. The site says there is marked bays & metered bays by entrance. If doesn't say on Kingsland Rd, to the left of park area is where the dropped kerbs are. We spent 20 mins trying to find the entrance. Slabbed slope on to a sort of gravel not very wheelchair friendly. Ramp to entrance lobby staff welcoming. Section one the time line rooms are well set out but the walkway if front of rooms gets narrower and narrower as you go, the information sections before each room is informative but again very tight with wheelchairs and buggies passing. The old chapel and reading room are a delight, but on s hot day staff could open windows in reading room to give people a resting area with fresh air. New Gallery section very well thought out with more up to date room settings. Shop has very good choice of things and the Cafe looked very nice, too busy on our visit. Couldn't find a way to the rear garden area. Very nice Park area out side at front under the trees on the benches.

The museum is free but encourages contributions. Probably allow 1 hour to look round and there's also a herb garden around the side which is worth seeing.

This is a free museum and really worth going to. The displays have been arranged really well with lots of information. The gardens are beautifully kept and the cafe is fantastic. They offer free children's activities during the summer months which is great to see.
