  • This museum in three words is imaginative, creative and unique. I gasped and wow'd my way around this Aladdin's cave of magical memories and immersive scenes. You can tell this place is born out of pa...  read more »

  • Myself and my friend went here with my little girl who's almost two. After reading the previous reviews I was unsure what to expect. This place is quirky and worth a visit. There is so much to explore...  read more »
  • An amazing place which is lots and lots of fun. Just been to their latest exhibition 'Animal' which looks amazing and really immerses you in the stories. The Varjak Paw room is the best, using paint that captures your shadow on the wall after a light flashes, it's lots of fun to pull silly poses and see the effec. All the rooms look stunning though and have really transformed the space. Time for Bed is still a favourite and is a nice place to chill out and read some books (even if you're a grown up). I've visited lots and it's alway my go to place to take friends and family when they're visiting as there's lots to look at and amuse. My niece loves it, especially the throne room where kids and adults can all dress up. There's lots going on too and I've been to some really good events aimed at adults, and the kids activities in the holidays always look fun. It's definitely not a museum in the traditional sense, but it's really interesting with lots to do and I love how it really draws you into stories and make them seem alive.
  • A real find. Great for sparkling the imagination in youngsters. The talking throne room is fabulous. Children loved the UV wall. Nice cafe for children as well.
  • For £7.50 an adult, we were expecting more of an exhibition, than just a exagerated play area for kids. There were a few events going on, but really for something that bills it's self as a museum of storytelling and then has no information on the history, craft or types of story telling, we were very dissapointed. To exacerbate this, there was a lack of guidance with the rooms and the signs, no clear 'path' or narrative to the building. We left after half-an-hour. Money down the drain.
  • Sadly didn't get to go around, only there for a meetup. But a lovely room for us.
  • An amazing place for children young and old!
