Fascinating place - wish I could have spent lots longer there!

Loved this place. From Napoleon's toothbrush to shrunken heads there is so much to see. And that's just the 'everyday' exhibitions - they have lots of other things going on too. Accessibility is great - my pal said that the platform lift was 'the best platform lift he'd ever seen'.
Transport & Parking
We were travelling on foot - it's a short distance from Euston and King's Cross stations - with plenty of train and bus links.
Very good. There are large automated double doors on entry. There is a robust platform lift to get to the entrance - and when we went in there was someone who came to operate it immediately for us. The lifts between floors are spacious. We only went to the 'everyday' areas as didn't have time to do the special exhibitions but we loved what we saw... Large print guides readily available. Displays at a good height. Information available in different formats. There are Audio Guides available. There are also staff members who are BSL users.
Very good - clean and spacious.
Very helpful. Eager to assist and check that we had all info we needed etc.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Will definitely go back & spend more time there next time! Particularly loved the Reading Room where you could while away many an hour!
