  • I love this museum so much. The people who work here are so friendly and approachable. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask a member of staff. I spoke with a man who was either a volunteer there or someone who worked there. He new so much about the history of the museum. He showed me a dollhouse in one of the rooms and it was actually a replica of what the museum looked like when it was a house. He explained what every room in the house was. I sat down and listened to everything that he said. The museum has stairs and also a lift. There are also toilets and a gift shop. The museum is wheelchair accessible via a ramp.
  • Really good social history of Colchester experience. Added bonus that it was free to enter.
  • Lovely museum some really interesting stuff to look at and it's free! Kids love the dolls houses and also a toy exhibition and a tunnel to crawl through. Good for adults and kids alike.
  • Good place to visit
  • Great place full of wonderful things and it's free.
