The museum is relatively small, entered through a recreation of an early 1900 pharmacy. Having paid our entrance fee of £8.50 and lodged our back packs in the downstairs lockers we proceeded to explore.
The museum is linked via an underground tunnel to something called Kube, personally don’t bother, unless your into installation art.
However, we quickly returned to the area we were most interested in - the AV show and Art Nouveau house. The AV show about the 1904 fire is cunningly disguised as a time machine but was strangely unavailable for the next 1.30 hour. When quizzed a member of staff said it was a private party. In fact it appeared to be for the expensive walking tours who demanded no waiting time. This was shortly followed by the cafe being closed for an apparently similar private party. Disappointed we moved on.
We enjoyed what was left of the house but would have preferred to have been told that parts of the museum would be off limits before we had paid! Of course we could have returned later but on a tight timeline we couldn’t.
