    Make sure to go up to the 6th floor and at least have a look at the view out the window even if you don't want a bite from the café there.

    If you get the yearly membership, you can get up to the members room up on the top with an amazing view. Interesting exhibitions and great architecture - def worth a shot. Will be ready in 2016.

    My favourite in London. Permanent exhibition is free but paid ones are worth checking out. Major newspapers such as Financial Times do their reviews so keep an eye on those and pick one
