Don’t even THINK about touching ANYTHING, ANYWHERE. The over zealous staff will pounce on you. This is a completely wasted opportunity to have a great interactive museum for families, but exhibits...

Excellent & amazing museum with something to interest everyone here. The museum has free entry and is highly recommended, with numerous quality displays celebrating British life over the centuries covering artifacts, transport, agriculture, industry, fossils, schools, fashion, household life and much more, plus children's interactive play areas. Brilliant place to visit!
Despite visiting Stratford Park regularly, we had never visited the Museum before yesterday. We had been missing out for sure! We were amazed that it was a) free (donations more than welcome), and b) had so many activities for the kids specifically to do. I.e. various trails around the park and the museum itself. Our personal favourite part was the walled garden. There was also an insect exhibition on when we visited.
