I have been to a few art museums, but this was by far the best. The paintings and pieces of art were spectacular, and walking around the museum gives you a great insight into mental health.— Caroline Ross-Biggs
The talks at the museum are very high quality as are the exhibitions and you will learn lots about the hospitals history, prior patients, art and mental health and much more. I cannot recommend the Museum highly enough.— happytravels618

Incredibly thought provoking and provides an idea of how hugely complex treating mental health can be. Definitely worth a visit.— Emma Westhrop
