  • I love this building!! This building is beautiful! I love the architecture, specially the ceilings. Love the shapes created of the doorways, corridors and staircases. Being a photographer I managed to capture some great,creative shots. I would happily go here all day and just take photos of the building inside and out.
  • Wonderful place to spend a few hours. So much to see that is free, so much more in the special exhibitions. Well positioned beside the Thames. Plenty of toilets. Have just visited for a very different show. Still friendly and decently laid out. Could do with more seating inside the exhibitions
