Well worth a visit but a couple of hours were not enough a lot too see. There is even an Aquarium on one floor. Best to take lift to top fifth floor and work down. No entry fee and children seen to love it.

Did not have time to see the museum. However recommend the cafe for a self service lunch. Home made daily soup. Nice decor. Uninteresting gift shop. Very disappointing merchandise. They need a new buyer!

Hi, can I take photographs in the new Egyptian exhibition ? Also, are camera backpacks allowed around the museum? It's not overly big but some places take them off you at at door. Many thanks

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.
