Visiting this centre was both culturally interesting and educating. I feel that it is a centre which should be part of schools and public visits to support the embracing of our diverse communities

The opening times are very strange (the museum opens for a while in the morning, then closes around midday and opens again in the evening). I arrived in the morning on a Tuesday and had to nip into the adjoined gurdwara for someone to let me in. Inside though there's an interesting collection of Sikh military artifacts and several (!)...

For some strange reason photography is totally banned here - though to be fair it isn't that kind of place so don't be put off. Overall it explains the strife that Sikhs have gone through including some awful holocaust style attempts at exterminating them that the British (and I am white British) should feel utterly ashamed about as we simply...

Sort of open.I visited in its narrow open window on a Saturday. It is located opposite a temple in what might be called the temple compound. It is in converted industrial units and there are roller shutter doors rattling in the wind hidden by displays. It was unattended and I don't think all the lights were on. It seems to... More

Visited museum yesterday only to find it closed and no details on the door.It opens for a couple of hours only before lunch and again for a couple of hours in the evening. We did arrive at 1100 hrs and as stated it was deserted. I think this is a pretty poor showing. Fortunately we did not have too far... More

Have tried on three seperate occassions to access this attraction, once in the day time (opening time 1000-1200) and twice in the evening (opening time 1800-2000) and each time it was shut. On the first two occassions I was told (by people who work opposite this attraction) that someone would be there the next time to let me in, but... More

Small museum run in or next-to car wash run by Sikhs themselves. Some Sikh weapons, model of their main temple on a lake and many stories to read, both historical and contemporary. Stories mainly about Sikh holocaust, mass murders commited by democratic government in XX century despite UN, Declaration of Human Rights, almost without notice and reaction from international community....
