  • The visit to this museum is worth much sorrow. It is a walk through history, how many times have explained us the Industrial Revolution? There you touch it with your fingers, you smell it, you hear it. Not marketed them hats with the name of the city because already makes two centuries what sold was London. Hats of all sizes and styles. The surprise: made with hair of rabbit, tools, moulds, machinery avant-garde but conditions and wage differences that today seem spooky. They do not have information in Spanish, but they have a guide that strives to explain the operation of the factory with much passion. Thanks Sue!

  • What an amazing day out! Do the tour, I dare you not to want to start a hat collection after it!
  • Quite simply the finest museum in the world, I saw a chair that Winston Churchill may or may not have sat in.
  • Brilliant amount of museumery, plenty to see from the materials and the fabrication process and history, world hats and modern milinery. Kids had a good time trying out hats and costumes. probably needs more animation or workshops otherwise a good way to spend an afternoon.
  • It's OK for a one off visit. Kids get bored quite easily. They do a lot of school holiday activities.
  • So interesting but the kids just liked the activities and dress up
