An amazing experience. I cannot describe the imaginative ways and amount of information this place imparted. Celtic, Viking and maritime past. Brilliant. Well served by buses, parking in town. Good cafe on site with good friendly helpful staff.

A lot of thought has gone into this museum. It has been brilliantly put together and thought through. We spent a morning here going round. It really brings the early history of the Isle of Man to live. Highly recommended.

This is a fascinating and appealing museum, telling the history of the island, and it’s excellent value at £10. We were there three hours. Other reviewers have given details of what’s available so I’ll just say how good it is for people with disabilities. Wheelchair...More
