Funny to read in your TIME OUT review there is an « OVER-16s age restriction » and so you are « obliged to leave the kids at home » ! Then further down, you find that if the entrance ticket is £ 7... there is a free entrance to the exhibition for the « under -16s »; Thank you for this valuable information to people who prepare their holidays in London ! But be sure that well over 16, my wife and I will run to the exhibition ! Sincerely

Aaron

Fancy being a little bit more constructive with your criticisms Ivan? If you're going to take the educational high road while slagging off a review then at least work on your grammar.

I'm wondering who it is at Time Out London that writes the editorial drivel ... well at least on this particular exhibition ... pseudo Victorian values as a means to fill space ... please please spare us the uneducated comments.
