Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was a great experience. It made me feel like I was in the movie and I got close up to the dinosaurs. The activities were fun and lots of people would like it. The book gives you lots of information about the dinosaurs and the scan game gives you videos of the place.

    We were disappointed at the beginning, because it was just paintings, history and videos. The immersive experience was one room at the end, which was great, but we were already let down because we were expecting the immersive experience from the start. So although the whole thing was good, the disappointment at the beginning was hard to get over.

    This is a really nice attraction if you're not planning to do the Studio tour. It has a lot of photos from behind the scenes, and some green screen experiences.
    The crew is super-helpful and all-knowing as far as Harry Potter trivia goes, and there's a photographic treasure hunt which really enhances the experience.
    All in all, it's a great way to pass a couple of hours and enjoy a butter beer :)

    We happened upon the event while strolling. Fun and modern. Lots of young people and families. The Somerset House is the perfect venue. It was crowded and exhibits went deep into the bowels of the House. The scented wallpaper room was our favorite.

    Excellent exhibition, really fun, informative and entertaining! Gives a really great flavour of Seoul. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and the different rooms varied and exciting. Really cool place to visit whilst in Borough.

    We had a wonderful time as the sculptures were well put together and displayed the human condition in many ways. That being said I did think the organisation of the event in terms of crowd management was a bit reactive rather proactive.

    Parts of it were lots of fun and really creative but I was with a sensitive 5 year old who was terrified and overwhelmed by intentionallly creepy openly scary stuff which combined with darkness and an overall feeling of a lack of exits (it goes on forever like ikea) was tiring. We recently went somewhere else where the staff warned us re scary bits but there seemed to be no thought here put to warning people with little ones. the staff at the balloon museum were more like angry security than anything else. 9 year old loved it, I loved it, 5 year old may have nightmares

    It's cost me 24 pounds today in Edinburgh to see Van Gogh Alive .
    I thought it was ok at best ,non art enthusiasts may enjoy it more , some of the moving animation imposed onto his paintings were quite good ,
    The sunflower room was a waste of time .
    The concept didn't work for me , big screens everywhere showing much of the same thing ,and the images were not very good quality .
    Far better to stage it as a documentary in a single screen arena with narration
    to educate the audience .
    I stayed for 1 hour , for families the Zoo or cinema would be a better deal.

    The New London Model is itinerant, it would seem, but currently shares a reception area with the Guildhall library (just ask if you can visit). There are 3 models. The main model is 1:2000, the City is 1:500 (so 1cm is 5m in real life) and then there is a Docklands model too (showing current and prospective developments that have permission to be developed).

    The London skyline is changing so quickly it must be hard for the modellers to keep up!

    Whilst the story of the Titanic is an arresting tragedy, this exhibition was difficult to enjoy due to persistent spelling errors, inconsistent use of units and measures, sentences that do not scan and the whole exhibition generally having a strange, child-like tone to the writing.

    The Olympic “never sank to the bottom of the ocean” - how far did it sink??

    “Thankfully, cabins C-79 to C-81 were unoccupied” as the entire ship disintegrated - yes, that really would have been a tragedy.

    “Thomas Mullin might have survived the sinking, but he didn’t and drowned”.

    And so on. Quite disappointing.

    I had to see this "Art of Banksy" exhibition in Regents Street, an exhibition by the owners of all the pieces shown who'd like to share them with us (it's not an authorized exhibition by the man himself yet these are all his authenticated works, for the pedantic amongst us).

    What a great exhibition, his humour, early barefaced cheek and spot on political commentary, are even more engaging than I ever expected.

    I went off peak at 12.30, though the staff let me in earlier than my ticket time as I was early. It was a leisurely stroll through the two floors and gift shop though there were guided parties which can be done by Banksy experts.

    I highly recommend this exhibition to anyone who loves Banksy and his work, Some of his quotes written on the walls were as priceless and cutting as his artworks.

    The three photos I've included are all visible from the pavement so I've not shared anything I shouldn't - you are able to take photos anyway which surprised me but I took some beauties.

    Nearest tube is Piccadilly Circus {Piccadilly & Bakerloo lines} though as I was early I strolled from Green Park {Victoria, Jubilee & Piccadilly lines} catching the Fortnum & Mason Clock chimes at noon en route.

    Zari Gallery in Fitzrovia’s Newman Street promotes art ‘beyond borders’ with reference to a manifesto. This proclaims it has a diverse, inclusive and worldly selection of artists. These include Anthony Christian who paints fleeing and fleeting figures nude beneath their togas, Robert John who paints minute figures atop angular rooftops of vast modern buildings, and Yurim Gough who makes pots which double up as commodes and bells. The current exhibition is by Marion Farnon Christian, you’ve guessed it, the wife of Anthony, called Tying Secrets to Poetry. She creates abstract images tied to the natural world including a painting of a ceramic chicken. Whether this exhibition of her works might lay her a golden egg remIns to be seen.

    Some nice / interesting props here, but totally done on the cheap – no context, order or logic to the exhibition and overall no care in the presentation.

    It's essentially an empty retail until covered in black drapes with a bunch of somewhat randomly placed props (OK the Delorean is there, but so are odd things like half the back bumper of the flying taxi Biff took in Back to the Future 2).

    Shame, could have been much better with a bit more thought.
