Comments from Honeywood Museum's Visitors' Book

Carshalton-on-Sea 2015

"Fantastic day on Saturday (so good we came back Sunday). It was brilliant seeing such life in the house - history brought back to life and in the making - really felt like a village and so much more character than anything in Sutton High Street."

"Do it again!"

"Great event for all the family."

"The children really enjoyed themselves. The activities were good quality and well planned. The magician was a big hit. A lovely family event."

"Fantastic event, especially for children."

"Spent most of our time at the museum. Wonderful singing and kids' games in the garden. Came back today (Sunday) for the show. Fabulous that things were free or really cheap. Whole event would benefit from a person in the High Street directing people to events - like an Olympic volunteer idea."

General comments

I think the art stuff is really cool. It is great to know you can come here in the holidays to paint and glue.

I think this is the best museum in the world. x Ciana / This is so cool. I love the toy room and the dressing-up area and the arts and crafts. This was the best family outing ever in my life. Love Cici xxxx
