Really interesting display about the development and evolution of Croydon. Well worth a visit. The café in the building is very good, and good value for money. Excellent coffee!!
I grew up around Croydon, and was intrigued to see what the Museum of Croydon had to offer. In line with several of the other TripAdvisor reviews for it, I was really impressed by the museum and everything it had to offer. The museum staff went out of their way to make your visit as pleasant as possible, and the exhibits were informative and very well presented. Even though I don't live that close by, I plan to make a return visit soon.
