Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Museum is small but very good. We went with the local playgroup so there were activities for the children.

Only a very small museum but a number of interesting exhibits and some useful things to entertain the young ones such as a sand tray and lego pit. Charming staff.

It is very small, not too much to see or learn. One could make it more fun, more appealing, more attractive. It is located in the centre of Richmond, close to the river Thames.More
