Bu muhteşem müze ziyaretimiz gezimizin kreması oldu.Programda olmadığı halde,Glasgow şehir turunu yarım saat erken bitiren yerel tura itiraz ederek,bizi müzenin önünde bıraktırıp 3 saat sonra tekrar almalarını sağlayan, gezi boyu çok iyi anlaştığımız, konuya son derece hakim, bilgili Rehberimizin sayesinde içeriği ve ihtişamı ile gözkamaştıran ,Londra dışında enfazla ziyaretçi alan bu müzeyi görmeden dönseydik gezimiz gerçekten eksik kalırmış.Teşekkürler Sayın Mebrure Uçkun hanıma.
