  • WOW. As a fan of Shakespeare, this museum just really exceeded my expectations. There was a man who played the school teacher who was just amazing beyond words. He is a really intelligent man with a wealth of knowledge. He was teaching us Latin and just the conversations I had with him could have gone on and one. Really amazing experience speaking to him. The school itself is wonderful and still functioning. Proceeds from the gift shop go to the school There were also actors doing Shakespeare by request outside. This is a MUST SEE
  • An amazing school room experience. Up before the school master to take part in a lesson that Shakespeare would have undergone. The school Master was a tour de force who presented a great time. Other rooms show examples of early wall paintings.
