It was very interesting, sad, funny and you have to read the confessions, staff were friendly and its self explanatory as you walk round, there are loads of stories from one room to the next that you can listen to on a little voice box it translates into English so you can hear all the different information and what's even better at the end before you walk out you can have your pic taken, it's fun and free and an experience I would recommend

Really good, not seedy, very welcoming experience. We were a bit nervous but the whole experience was fantastic. We booked early in the morning so it wasnt busy which helped as it's a very small space. As it was quieter, we got see everything in detail and try out the interactive sections which was loads of fun. Would highly recommend!!

Amazing value for money! You get a free guide book to keep, an audio tour and a free printed photo of you in the window. Really nicely laid out and enjoyable experience. Loads of info to read and listen to; plenty of visual stuff for those who don’t like to read every museum sign.
