NICE LITTLE MUSEUM. MAYBE A BIT TOO LITTLE
ago 2021
We saw the museum on Michael Portillo's TV programme. We live close to Pinner, but had never heard of this museum.
If you live locally, it is well worth a visit. Maybe, because the exhibits are limited, you shouldn't travel too far.
The booking is annoying (compulsory "voluntary" addition to ticket price as well as a booking fee) - but there is a reasonably priced public car park for Pinner Memorial Park. From there it is a short walk through the park (past a charming duck pond) to the modern museum building.
It isn't very large! A small collection of posters is well presented in a comfortable, air conditioned space.
The staff are very helpful. There were no other visitors when we went (on a Saturday afternoon). Don't rush around the exhibits otherwise you'll be in and out in 10 minutes.

Could be so much more
ott 2020 • Famiglia
I hate leaving a negative review of such a niche museum, but it could be so much more.
It represents a man who was so clever and amusing and yet the museum really lacks creativity.
I understand that two items were out of use due to covid, but even so.
I tend to spend many hours in museums but try as I might this was finished in under an hour.
I just feel it doesn't pay sufficient testament to Heath Robinson

Lovely little art gallery/museum
ott 2020 • Coppie
I have been fascinated, since childhood, by the illustrations and cartoons of William Heath Robinson, especially his over elaborate machines for doing the simplest of tasks. The term "Heath Robinson" is still in my vocabulary to describe something randomly put together. So to discover that there was a museum dedicated to William Heath Robinson was quite exciting!
This wonderful museum is only small, with three gallery rooms and a shop. Two of the rooms are dedicated to the work and illustrations of Heath Robinson and the third, when we visited, had a special temporary exhibition on another London 20th century illustrator, Charles Keeping.
This is a modern little museum set in set in a park with cafe, lake and children's play area.
The exhibits were well presented in the galleries with plenty of useful and informative display notes. I learnt a lot from my visit. For instance, I had not realised that Heath Robinson did many other types of illustration besides his cartoons, I learnt that he illustrated the "Water Babies", a book I had in childhood. Also his World War 1 propaganda cartoons were poignant.
The staff were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. This museum is well worth a visit (one hour is all that is needed).

Very pleasant museum with something for everyone, whether you are familiar with W. Heath Robinson or new to his work. Set in the green of Pinner Memorial Park, well worth a visit.

Charles Keeping Londoner & Illustrator

Lovely small exhibition space set in parkland. I have known Charles Keeping and his family for many years and this exhibition brought back happy memories for me.
This is a series of pictures that will be enjoyed by all age groups, wonderful illustrations, sometimes dark, sometimes joyful, but all quite amazing! and I urge you to visit.

Well worth a visit
nov 2019
This was a great little museum located in the middle of a park in Pinner and was good fun to look round. Not just informative but very amusing and interractive. Lots of bits and pieces and books etc to buy from the museum shop. Definitely worth a visit.

Fascinating look at one of the funniest of all illustrators
ott 2019
A life-long fan of W Heath Robinson's work, I found this museum a real treat. In a modern building in a beautiful park, manned by knowledgeable and charming volunteers, it's modest in scope yet gives a comprehensive look at the life of one of the funniest of all British illustrators, a man who was also capable of more serious work of the highest quality. The permanent and temporary exhibits made me hungry for more, to the benefit of the shop! Well worth a trip if you know anything about Heath Robinson or are interested in learning about him.

A pleasant surprise to find in the park!
ago 2019
There was a guide on hand who was most informative and interesting. Even though I am not an engineer or draughtsman, I do enjoy art, and thus this museum was well worth taking the time in which to spend an hour. The Shakespearean connection was fascinating. I need to allow more time if I am in the area again. There is a permanent museum and also exhibitions which are installed for set periods of the year.

Really interesting
lug 2019 • Solo
I went this afternoon to the Heath Robinson museum in Pinner. I’ve been meaning to go for ages but it’s only open some of the week.it was much more interesting than I thought it would be. I hadn’t realized how many illustrations I had seen in books were his work.
The museum is set in the beautiful park in
pinner that I don’t remember being in since I was a child.Even though I’ve lived nearby all of my life. Park is gorgeous although not large and delightful little Cafe obviously very popular.
Both well worth a visit
