  • PROS: - 3 floors of quite a lot of things to see, - cafe if you become hungry/thirsty, - free entrance, but you can support them with a membership or a donation, - best part for me was the history of British Railways from past until now and their plans for the future (Tube line all the way to Reading), - Huntely&Palmers cookie tins exhibition was interesting as well. CONS: - /
  • It's slightly under appreciated but I do enjoy this museum with it's slightly eclectic collection of objects.
  • What more do you want for free, or a small donation anyway? I bizzarly really enjoyed the train exhibition.
  • A really interesting and eclectic range of exhibits and artefacts - a good way to while away an hour or so.
  • Great museum with a lot of historical objects from reading, it's nicely spread out rather than cluttered together with random selections like other museums I've visited
