Extremely,disappointed! £15 for two of us absolute rip off...Did not find this museum scary in the least and took all of 40 minutes to get round, and that was stretching it out.. Some exhibits were pointless...why would I want to see a police officer cravat?...More

Small, but perfectly formed I would say, it's absolutely fascinating and you could go year after year and see something different as they are alway displaying new stuff as well as the more permanent displays, well worth a visit, but NOT recommended for young children...More

Visited on a wet and windy weekday in December and found that we were all alone in the museum. The atmosphere was creepy and a little scarey. Some really interesting exhibits and the staff were really engaging and keen for us to enjoy our visit.

We came across this museum to get much needed shelter from a horrible storm, and we're so glad we did. The museum in informative, interesting, interactive and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

On a miserable Saturday afternoon the museum provided a welcome and fascinating respite from the rain. It’s quite small but they’ve managed to pack in tons of grizzly tales of the macabre. Would thoroughly recommend!
