    Very interesting collection and had a much needed lesson in how to lose board games with grace.

    Not sure what made me feel older: seeing objects and games from my childhood as exhibits or seeing Harry Potter games as exhibits??? Nevertheless it's a great museum

    The display could be better curated and more interactive. The board game exhibition was the saving grace.

    Quite a kitschy but a nice walk down memory lane. Try not to go on public holidays - kids galore (as one would expect!). Nice sit down café on ground floor.

    Noisy and energised with all the little ones underfoot but very interesting too. I learned that hipster frames were an NHS throwback. Who knew?
