Free small museum which had very interesting display cabinets. We did the 1hr 45min tour of the Crystal Palace site with an excellent guide priced at a very reasonable £3.50. Highly recommend.

Nice, small place, little tired, but still very interesting, and it's free! You can also walk around the park, and visit dinosaurs and farm.

I would love this place to get some investment. Great little museum that showcases the great history of the Palace. Looks a little tired. Thank you to the volunteers that run it.

As small and understated as the original Palace was grand and flamboyant, this museum packs a lot in and really brings the story of the CP to life. There's a good selection of (small) artefacts, cuttings and information boards and there were knowledgeable enthusiasts available...More
