The exhibits in the galleries are good, the building itself is amazing! Nearly every surface is decorated in glazed ceramic tiles and it has to be seen to be believed. The original 'red brick' university.

This museum is still relatively unknown but definitely worth the visit if you are in to all things Victorian. The real teeth dentures called Waterloo teeth as they were often taken from soldiers on the battlefield were fascinating. The decor is quite simply fabulous.
