Not bad place to visit if you have got time to waste. Not to be taken too seriously as only replica's are available to see. A lot of money to pay for just a small exhibition. Not very good access for disabled people.

This place is the quintessential English fake museum! It was clearly designed by an English eccentric many moons ago, and now it's looking a bit dated and moth-eaten in a charmingly English crappy way. It's not awful, exactly, but it needs dragging into the 21st...More

I would say half an hour to threequarters of an hour to read and look at all the details and exhibits thoroughly.
