Always a pleasure to go to professional permanent and temporary exhibitions or topical seminars. BUT if you also want kosher tea, coffee or cake FORGET it. Such a shame as it precludes many folk from rounding off their visit with a kosher coffee and cake....More

A very interesting and educational place . Not to big to be overwhelming and it's amazing what you can learn even at the age of 65 . A sort of hidden gem well worth the look for . Thoroughly recommended .
