Despite all the notices and advice that it was open, it was closed unless "you have an appointment". Came from Leicester. Disappointing.

I was expecting the museum to be a bit boring to be honest, but it was anything but! Really well laid out, friendly and welcoming staff, they didn't mind the kids being in there. Will definitely be going again on a rainy day!
