This Museum should please every Museum visitor. It is not large but very enjoyable. The medieval armour is worth the visit alone, add “The Laughing Cavalier” and you have a pleasant couple of hours.

The collection was enjoyable, and of a moderate scale so that you can take it in over an hour or two, without feeling like you are missing something. It was a lovely building, and the rich colors on the walls were very nice.

Absolutely a fantastic museum with an excellent collection. A little bit of this and that for all. Be sure to see "The Swing" with the salon style of exhibition you can easily miss some great Masters.

I almost didn"t go as I wasn't feeling well. It would have been criminal to miss this! The building itself with it's history and detail is outstanding. The armory collection, paintings and furnishings were breathing....we will be back.

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

It is fairly large and the size of the crowds does not seem to be a problem at any time.
