I had a delicious lunch with a freind in the museum cafe, and then we went round the museum, wanting particularly to see the exhibition of wedding dresses. The meal was very good and the exhibition excellent.

This museum is interesting and does have some really interesting history of the women's movement, but there were some really scary bits. It's not deliberate by I found the exhibitions of bagged children's clothes, the dystopic children's bedroom, the incidental taxidermy and the wax works/mannequins...More
