really enjoyable visit - fantastic to see a first edition of Johnson's dictionary. If you have a spare hour would definitely recommend a look. A surprisingly large exhibition.

A great place for all the family. My six year old and three year old really enjoyed exploring the rooms, made even more fun by the 'finding the cats' activity. They also enjoyed dressing up!
