“Fabulous - need more than a day to take it in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Wonderful building with fabulous and interesting displays - one of the best museums I have ever visited. Only wish the layout was a bit more logical - went up and down and back again!

“Just too much 'stuff'”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

There must be barns full of other stuff that you never see, but there is so much of the same sort of stuff here you get brain numb - too much ancient Egypt/Greece not enough 'British History'-  let them have their Marbles back
