  • A very disappointing experience today on my visit to Bankfield museum. Met by a very unhelpful and confrontational staff member by the name of Dennis who wasn't interested in my efforts to contribute to the development of services to the public. Rather he saw it as his job to enforce the rules with giving any regard to the visitor experience. Prompted a complaint to the museums department. If you take your own sandwiches to the museum be very wary about asking Dennis if there is anywhere indoors where you can eat. You might just incur his wrath!
  • Because it was interesting seeing how grandparents use to live in the old days.
  • An interesting building. Well geared up for school group activity.
  • Very warm welcome from staff member who told my grandson what to look out for and set us off in the right direction, lots of interesting exhibits and weapons. A good afternoon out.
  • Sweet little museum in an incredible building. Helpful staff and free entry.
