Its a well set out museum with plenty of space for kids to enjoy themselves. Im not a huge fan of museums but was fun. The craft room for creating things was good. We made dino masks. All in all lovely visit.

You can spend a lot of time inside, there is a good variety of showrooms, even a room where kids can play and interact.

A must for a family day out. Egyptian gallery is excellent. Finish your visit with lunch in the fabulous cafe. Reasonable prices in the stunning former entrance - beautiful tiled floors, marble columns and look up to the amazing ceiling

Yes you can without flash, and yes you can take your backpack. They have a locker room by the entrance which is handy if you don't want to lug your bags with you (useful!)

It is both inside and out, the street is cobbled but with good pavement access. The lifts inside are the swooshy new sort with open plan shafts.
