Absolutely delightful to see Father Christmas. So reasonably priced, charming Father Christmas and staff. Lovely present and a photo. Couldn't be better. Then we had a fabulous brunch in the Edwardian Tea rooms. Delicious food and wonderful service. Great experience, surrounded bybeautiful art too!

Interesting enough museum but nothing to really engage. Not many interactive things. Probably far more interesting if you get a tour as you would know what it is all about. We passed through in 35 minutes.

Great display of pre-raphaelite paintings and of course the Staffordshire horde. Well worth a visit to see some excellent paintings, sculpture, ceramics and gold work.

No display of natural history sort of display. May not be appealing to the younger mind but I notice there is a colourful corner leading to the cafeteria.
