We selected this museum from several adjacent ones. It had a number of displays. I liked both the bicycles and the carriages. It was an agreeable hour, but I could have stayed longer. Free.

I loved this museum. I didn’t realise how big it was, there’s so much to see. I particularly liked the carriage section and the simulated carriage ride, the chemist shop and bike exhibition. Well worth a visit.
