Excellent museum in a beautiful town house building. An amazing collection of stuff, a lot of it acquired in auctions after the French revolution. I particularly liked the armoury displays, especially the oriental part. The galleries upstairs were more a mixed bag. Nice courtyard cafe, a bit on the expensive side. The museum is free though! Early Saturday afternoon was a decent time to visit, not too busy.
Great place, a hidden gem that unfortunately doesn't get marketed enough. The museum is packed with different artefacts, ranging from art and sculptures, vases and Japanese porcelain to an impressive collection of arms & armours from different periods. If I was to recommend just 2 museums in London, one will surely be this one - it combines just enough of everything! And it's all free! And if you get tired sit for a bit in the cafe, which has an amazing atmosphere. Do NOT miss this one out!
