A typical museum, interesting and laid out well. I love getting lost in these places, ideal to spend a good few hours on a rainy half term

The Museum is a mere shadow of what it may have been and what it used to be. It is barely noticeable and is merely an adjunct of the public library. It is difficult to get to and difficult to park nearby. It has fallen...More

A surpising number of modern and last century paintings, drawings and photographs. It was free and we spent an interesting couple of hours there. Top floor balcony provides a view of the town and canals.
