A museum that has something for everyone. The building itself is worth the visit. Come early and get 4 hours parking for just one pound. Cafe was very good; reasonably priced and fast service. Organ recital was wonderful.

If you like museums you will like this one. Lots of different interests catered for whether it is egyptian mummies or 19th and 20th century art. Went to the comic exhibition too which was very engaging.

Love the variety of exhibits, and when we arrived the organ was in use, which was lovely. The air was a bit stuffy, but it just gave us an excuse to go out into the park for breaks.
