ABOUT THE CAFE
The Museum Cafe is a great place to take a break from history
and eat a modern sandwich.
Pre-packed snacks and hot meals are available, and there is a
teapot, or biscuits depending on the day.
If you would like to book your mid-museum snack in advance, do
call our hotline on 01999 391055, remembering to have your name
handy when prompted.
A MESSAGE FROM THE CURATOR ABOUT THE MUSEUM
If I had to choose my favourite part of the museum, and I wasn't
allowed to pick the toy gallery any more because of what Dr Highland
told me about letting go of the past. I'd choose the cafe!
Every lunch time, I love to visit the cafe and get myself some
fish fingers, beans and toast, and a glass of water, making sure
that the fish fingers are all pointing the same way on the plate
and that the ketchup is on one side (left) and the fish fingers
are on the other side (right). The fingers mustn't have any black
bits. The toast must be cold before the butter is put on, and
it has to be butter, not margarine. If there is no butter, then
I mustn't be given toast (hot or cold). The bean juice must never
touch the fish fingers or the toast, and the toast must be put
on a separate plate on the left hand side of the tray, at least
a fork's width from the main plate, which must be the blue one.
The water should be in a duralex glass, with the number 14. That's
Enjoy the cafe!
Daniel D. Dann, Curator
