An excellent history lesson. We really enjoyed seeing brands from our childhood and amazed how our memory of when things first appeared. Everything was well laid out and kept our interest. The cafe and garden were very pleasant.

Visited mid June, and thought there were many "no photography" symbols in the timeline section.. Also not much distance between exhibition cases, and you would be photographing through glass.
