  • Lovely setting, its a mishmash of everything. Very cluttered and a ton load of newspaper clippings on the walls. Worth a look but no need for all the warnings ..
  • Today was the first visit, absolutely amazing and full of history. The display is very unique and a one off. A must see history museum
  • Museum of the dark past with a touch of modern celebrities. Not really suitable for children as they will get nightmares. Also it's cash only. Could do with a little cafĂ©. Great experience
  • Well worth a visit this was my third I went with my granddaughter and her partner they had never been before. They spent an hour and fourth five minutes in there and said they could have stayed all day it was so fascinating.
  • as a lover of serial killers /prisoners /murderers /controversy /conspiracy theories /facts /historical objects / murder memorabilia etc I thoroughly enjoyed the amount of information & articles/displays/exhibits little dean had to offer. reasonable price for admission & great for anyone who loves alternative things. hours well spent here
