Tour: Europe 1600-1815

Fantastic place to visit. Great collections and very educational. Takes a long time to get around it all though so wear something comfortable.

Whats not to love. The collection is huge and beautiful. The quad outside is perfect for a picnic and my sons had a lovely time playing in the fountain. No queues to get in either so for me it is far superior to Natural History and Science Museums
