  • I went today with my sister and a best friend and was so lucky to get in. We were privileged to be taken round the museum by Neil. It was absolutely fascinating. Neil knew so much and was a fountain of knowledge and very amusing with lots of antidotes to keep us entertained. It was brilliant and I learnt so much. I definitely recommend a visit you wont be disappointed
