We've passed the museum building so many times and never realised we could actually go in. It's a real treasure. It has a such a good atmosphere, the staff are very welcoming and there's a great lit...tle cafe if you fancy a coffee and a bite to eat.. The architecture and decoration inside the building are breathtaking and it's has some really interesting displays. See More

We have been to the VG&M several times this year and every time have found the staff to be most helpful and super friendly making this a wonderful place to visit. The building itself is amazing, the ...atmosphere warm and inviting. The displays in the galleries are well presented and the staff very knowledgeable about the pieces. Good food offered in the cafe with plentiful seating. Definitely worth a visit. See More

The exhibits were fab.
The building is a work of art in its own right.
The food and service were both excellent.

This is a gem of a building housing some really interesting exhibits. The cafe there serves some good snacks and drinks which one can drink in the exceptional central area which, like the stairway, is... lined with relly beautiful period tiles. Well worth a visit. Family friendly too! Lots for children to see. See More
