  • We thought this museum would be lame from it's description but were close by and took a look in. It was actually fab! It was really interesting to see all the different historical styles, the exhibits were really visual and nice. There was also a lot of context given to what we saw, which was so cool because it made it so that we were completely interested and engaged rather than just wandering through aimlessly (which, despite best intentions, is often what happens at museums). We were sad that we came so close to closing time!
  • Interesting museum if interested in interior architecture over history. I love the shiny staircase !
  • Beautiful gardens, recommend for a sunny day so you can sit outside & enjoy them. Museum is interesting.
  • Quaint and not too crowded, this charming place is a great way to kill an hour if you're curious about the details of every day life, how that changed over time, and why. If you're not into reading the narrative you could easily get through in 15 mins and visually it'll still be a treat.
  • Great, free to enter museum charting the way the middle classes have lived in London over the last 400 years. Have some interesting expansion plans too.
