A very small, but friendly museum. Several trails for children and chance to dress up and make mosaics (to be left behind). Doesn’t take long to go round with a little one, but she was free! Lasted about an hour, which was just right. Car...More

My husband, kids aged 12 and 10 and myself visited here. It was a very pretty museum, although a little small. The collection included some very neat items, although I would have liked to have more information plaques about specific objects. The Roman theatre was...More

There is a car park directly outside this attraction. You will need to pay as it is not free.
