Wasn't sure what to expect but was blown away by this amazing museum! It runs a potted history of British music since the war, making links and associations between genre, politics, art and culture of each demi-decade, with artefacts and interactive exhibits. There was a...More

Well, what an experience awaits you here. A must for all musical buffs. Allow a good 4 hours for your visit to take in everything. A beautifully set out exhibition with regular hologrammes of singers and bands in all their glory on the centre stage....More

We visited a couple of months ago and was very impressed with the exhibits (especially the punk and ska and reggae cabinets featuring 2-Tone and Suggs' suit). Perhaps there could've been more on display as the space was quite a large one. The museum was...More

Well presented and interpreted view of the development of the British pop and rock scene, in a city otherwise obsessed with the Beatles. There are a few odd abcences such as Dire Straits, and maybe lacking a bit in the multicultural influences and alternative genres...More

Visited as part of an event being held there but grateful for the opportunity. Loads of information on the exhibits with some great memorabilia and instruments on show. Love the interactive bits and the chance to try out the instruments. Well worth a visit!
