One hour is definitely not enough to finish this place. We came around 4pm and the museum closes at 5pm, we only managed to go through the art galleries and saw a bit of ancient Egypt. Worth a visit 💕

The museum had a lot of areas to wander in, there were some beautiful paintings and the ceramic displays etc were varied and plentiful. It was clean and appealing with the expected shopping area for gifts etc.

There are a number of car parks quite close, the nearest is the multi storey on Cambridge Street, less than 5 minutes walk away. It is quite expensive during the day. We use the train as it's cheaper.

I'm not very disabled but I have difficulty walking and I found the museum very disabled friendly. The lifts are good and there's masses of space for wheelchairs
