This is a good gallery venue and because it's not on the main tourist circuit is not over crowded. The exhibition of Perry's work was excellent, comprehensive and well hung. He work is quinessentially English, idiocentric, eccentric and with great humour. There was a good...More

For some reason we had low expectations for this museum but we were wrong. Great exhibits on the history of coin making and casting. Pretty huge museum, with excellent exhibits including hands-on, interactive bits. You even get to strike your own coin on a screw...More

Subodh Gupta's artworks were installed beautifully at the Mint, their bright, shiny brilliance set in the ornate backdrop of the galleries. The history exhibitions on money and the mint were also very interesting
