  • It's a great museum. A must see for the clock enthusiasts.
  • Great museum focused on social history
  • great place to visit, and it is free
  • I loved this museum...I'm 62 and this had so much equipment,toys and school stuff from my youth.I also enjoyed looking at the portraits,especially the sour faced woman from 17oo's who had 15 children,125 grandchildren,300+ greatgrandchildren and so on...Sunday dinner at hers must have been a riot!My grandchildren enjoyed the exhibits too and the little gift shop.The museum is free and well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Colchester

A short train ride from London, Colchester is a university and working town. Hotels in the town center are near the main attractions, but for less expensive lodging consider a room near the university campus, which is situated in a tree-filled parkland.
