  • Well this place really is great and I should have reviewed it after one of my previous visits. They pack so much stuff into this building and very easy to lose yourself for a couple of hours here even...  more »

  • Had a very interesting morning with a group of friends at the museum. We particularly enjoyed the films. Only comment would be we did the recommended canal walk in reverse and the info sheet I had downloaded was only in one direction. The website said that there was a leaflet for the reverse direction available at the museum but they had run out. We enjoyed the walk but I think we missed quite a lot as I was trying to follow the directions backwards on my phone. Would it be possible to have both on the website?
  • + Interesting and plenty of things for the kids to touch - £5 each for adults is a bit much for 2 very small floors -The bloke taking your money needs some customer service lessons. After asking if I had less than £20 note (for £12.50 total) I gave him £10 then all I got was £2.50, £2.50, £2.50 while I was counting the change. Then not another word, no thank you, no nothing, another chap stepped in and pointed to "go there first". Not very customer friendly.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at canal museum. The volunteer lady there was very friendly and knowledgeable. Recommended to visit
  • Hello - I live in a flat overlooking the museum on the canal and would like to request that you ensure your guests respect the privacy of your neighbours by kindly asking them to keep the noise down when standing on the wharf. There seems to be private parties every weekend at your venue and the noise levels are severely affecting the quality of life of your neighbours, unable to use our gardens / balconies when you have guests. Thank you.
  • If, a year ago, you'd told me i'd be posting a positive review of a tiny museum dedicated to canals... In response to owner: okay - not tiny ;) & I did like it.
