  • A lovely museum if a bit small. Enjoyed the talks at the beginning by the wonderful Caroline Bingley but beyond that the museum was very cut and dry. The dress up section was great and the guide even took photos for us. Was a nice thing to do but probably a bit over priced
  • This was a really fun place to visit for me (Jane Austen nerd), and my husband (not one). The set up and information was good, and the staff were all very friendly and full of information. Some fun activities to try too!
