A treasure trove of knowledge. Historical and modern technologies are all represented in a small but perfectly formed celebration of British ingenuity. The staff are all brilliant. Knowledgeable and accessible. It's free, but dig deep, it's worth it.

Hello there, Dogs are very welcome in most parts of the Museum, as long as they are kept under close control. The main exception is the upstairs Coffee Lounge. Thank you.
