Like many voluntarily supported museums this one should be better supported by the local authority. Its dedicated staff are hard working and probably under appreciated by the community.

Absolutely intriguing museum with very friendly and informative volunteers. Well worth a visit but has limited opening times so worth checking before visiting. We easily spent three hours looking around and it's great for children as it's interactive.

Visited as a car club. Warmly welcomed and given a designated car park. All exhibits were well maintained and had good notes to explaon their part in the museum. Staff were knowledgable and encouraged questions. Worth allowing plenty of time to absorb.
