  • Very good and interesting. Lots to see and the school trip looks great. Lots of fun and cool exhibitions
  • The John Piper paintings exhibition is well worth seeing. The museum holds many interesting exhibits on the Thames, rowing & boating, Henley, also on the story of Wind in the Willows.
  • Took my 4 year old and 5 month old. Had a great day out. Some good interactive exhibits for my 4 year old and plenty of room for the buggy. Food in the café is also lovely.
  • Popular museum and tourist attraction in Henley, adjacent to the parks and riverside. Good exhibitions, cafe and function rooms for hire.
  • Great informative Museum, good to see the Atlantic Challenger out the front as well!
