I have visited this museum a few times and have found it very interesting. Free to enter. Different exhibitions every few months. Coming from the area I found it fascinating. Do give it a try.

An excellent portrayal of the town's history . The volunteers were friendly and well informed. The street montages in the upstairs rooms with the photos and information on shops and trades of earlier days was particularly well done and interesting.
