The museum is very small (as expected) but it only has a hand full of things to see which makes it even more disappointing. We had seen all there was to see in about 10 minutes.

The museum is quite big on Margaret Thatcher as you would expect but other aspects of Grantham's history are covered. I only had 5 minutes and there was a lot I didn't see.
