  • One of the best small museums in London and deserves to be far better known. Always interesting things (DPRK propaganda posters; Soviet children's art) in the main space, and contrasting exhibitions in the Quentin Blake galleries. Hidden gem. Nicely-curated shop space too.
  • Great art pieces, and very informative. It's much smaller than you think, and therefore, not very good value. If you do go, I think you'll enjoy, but it's an expensive day out.
  • Great selection of illustrations, currently Gerald Scarfe. Small but intimate gallery
  • Great!! Really nice peaceful space, staff all on-the-ball and very pleasant! Looking forward to going back...
  • Amazing gallery, both permanent and visiting. Fascinating with engaged staff!
