  • A nice little museum, not enormous and the exhibits are perhaps dated, but this is a private museum not a mass funded "charity" one, and frankly the building itself and the enthusiasm of the tour guid...  more »

  • My friend and I have been recommend to leave our bags here, £1 a bag sounds like a pretty good deal! We had a look in the little store. The narrow cobble stones leading up to the entrance of the museum almost give you the sense of going back in time. We ended up opting for the two hour Shakespeare tour. I would highly recommend to young and old. Our guide called Shakespeare was fantastic he had the right amount of humour to keep you entertained. The tour was insightful and educational. If you want something cheap and worth your money, go on this tour!!
  • If you are in Stratford upon Avon, you must go here. The admission price is very low, the staff is extremely friendly and for kids it is very nice. There are 'pirate facts' and you can try everything, the beds, the table, write with a quill... it was very nice to visit. The staff know a lot about the Tudors and more.
  • Not worth the money. Guides printed wrongly. Information on information boards in the museum with wrong information and when l mentioned this them they said that they knew the information was wrong. So if they knew it was wrong why not change it and not just leave it. Not even worth the one star that I have given it. It really is that bad.
  • Why give them 5 star? Because it looked chaotic, tacky, informative but most of all it screamed, time to have fun! Most enjoyable and worth the entry fee charged.I left with a big smile on my face.
  • Interesting place with many information about Tudors' history. Also a place where you can leave your luggage until 17:00.
