  • Excellent museum that really engages you in a subject that some may people may feel they have no interest in. Everyone I've ever brought here has been thoroughly impressed. Recommended. Reading should shout more about this museum.

We only had a couple of hours available on this visit, so there were lots we didn’t get to see – especially the detailed collections in the cabinets on the upper story. We’ll definitely pay another visit before too long.
