Havnt seen mummies for a while in a museum. Enjoyed the aquarium room with live fishes and the bug room with live bugs. Staff were friendly and I was able to store my suitcase.

This museum is definitely geared up for those who have children of primary school age. Clean, bright, and we presented, but not for two City visiting adults. Had coffee in the cafe, very weak so make sure you ask for it strong.

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.
